The World Wide Web has been with us since 1993, social media for almost that long. Before Facebook and Twitter, there was Blogspot and, well, LiveJournal.
In that time, people have died from disease, accidents, violence, suicide, and all sorts of causes. All sorts of information and advice - true and false, trustworthy and questionable - has been posted to web pages around the world. If you were a web user, you understood that it was your job to sort out fact from falsehood for yourself. That was the whole idea of having access to the internet.
So now, all of a sudden, "misinformation" on the internet is a problem? And the technocrats who formerly contented themselves to make the connections and facilitate the communication, have now taken it upon themselves to be the arbiters of truth? And we're supposed to trust them?
Yeah, that's gonna be a no from me.
