Also by Kionix+160Everyone sees the world differently. No amount of begging or convincing can force somebody to see the world the same way as you do. You can only narrow the difference between your perspectives. amirite?
Huge libraries of civilization have been burned to the ground throughout history.
If someone in power doesn't like something, they cover it up.
That still happens every single day to varying degrees.
The internet is more heavily censored than you would be led to believe.
Look at how much access to history we have now and people refuse to even read a paragraph. Lol... Internet does nothing but weaken us.
this assumes that people would pay attention to it.
And have electricity
Perhaps not, but people who want to benefit from it will recognise the patterns... And there you have it, the system has a feedback and change is inevitable.
I do not agree. Humanity largely behaves according to its nature, and wikipedia and other sources seem not to have improved this. Learning from history and cultural development to a "better" global society has only been very marginal until now if not neglectible. That does not mean its not important: better societies are often ones that have historical awareness among its people (e.g. Germany). But having that level of historical awareness is unfortunately very rare
Internet has led to widespread cultural appropriation among it's consumers. I think it is a positive change. People willing to learn from different cultures and abandon pre existing ones, which makes them more dynamic.
Wikipedia and other sources may have had minimum impact on creating a global society but as their knowledge accumulates and their medium of reaching to public advances ( Kurzgesagt and Vsauce anyone) to be more entertaining yet not compromised. ( In the belief that truth itself is best ingredient for viewer) it is likely to change. This is not to mention shifts like VR and AI.
It has also led to the spread of obnoxious amounts of bs and misinformation, usually absorbed much faster by communities than interesting, nuanced information.
I do fully agree that we should however try to aim to educate people via the internet as it is indeed a means by which historical information can be permanently stored - making it potentially very valuable, but today I see us unfortunately still falling to the same fallacies as our ancestors
Strongly disagree. History is manipulated so much that most people usually don't know the true history.
So much disinformation and propaganda it's gonna be hard to keep a real record
If anything, the cycle of history has only gotten faster and more intense in the age of the Internet, rather than grinding to a halt or breaking any patterns.
We already are, buddy
You underestimate willful ignorance
your point is moot.
I have been bested. Internet is too smart.
