What are the main challenges facing democracy today?
Technology has allowed for “group think”/”echo chamber” environments to flourish and further confirm ones bias. It’s no coincidence that there is a “for you” page or “recommended” page on Youtube. We live to hear things that go along with what we already believe. Technology has only heightened this problem, with people on both sides living in completely different worlds. Now obviously we can’t get rid of tech, but the least we can do is educate people on those different cognitive biases which are exemplified by the digital world and restore the power of the individual which is what made democracy so great.
