"Then let us be content with the terms we used earlier on for the four divisions of our line – . The last two we class together as Opinion, the first two as Intelligence, Opinion being concerned with the world of becoming, Knowledge with the world of reality. Knowledge stands to Opinion as the world of reality does to that of becoming, and Intelligence stands to Belief and Reason to Illusion as Knowledge stands to Opinion."'The Republic' - Plato (380 BC)

It is said since ancient times, virtue comes from the man who must first be able to manage the country, Before that, he must be able to manage his household. Before that, he must be able to manage himself.
The filter bubble tends to dramatically amplify confirmation bias—in a way, it’s designed to. Consuming information that conforms to our ideas of the world is easy and pleasurable; consuming information that challenges us to think in new ways or question our assumptions is frustrating and difficult. This is why partisans of one political stripe tend not to consume the media of another. As a result, an information environment built on click signals will favour content that supports our existing notions about the world over content that challenges them.
Talking isn’t doing. It is a kind of good deed to say well; and yet words are not deeds.
I social media danno diritto di parola a legioni di imbecilli che prima parlavano solo al bar dopo un bicchiere di vino, senza danneggiare la collettività. Venivano subito messi a tacere, mentre ora hanno lo stesso diritto di parola di un Premio Nobel. È l’invasione degli imbecilli.
Social media gives legions of idiots the right to speak when they once only spoke at a bar after a glass of wine, without harming the community. Then they were quickly silenced, but now they have the same right to speak as a Nobel Prize winner. It’s the invasion of the idiots.
