#119: Internet Discourse

What can I say about the internet that I haven't already said in the commentary of a previous comic? The world wide web was supposed to better inform us and bring us together. Instead, it has only allowed us to become more misinformed and polarized as a society.

The worst part is that there doesn't seem to be a real solution to this mess that doesn't involve infringing on free speech. How do we ensure the free exchange of ideas on the virtual marketplace while holding back the tide of hate and misinformation? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
