“My feeling about the Internet is that it’s neither good nor evil; it is deeply morally neutral. It has no consciousness of its own. It becomes what we make of it. It’s just a hugely powerful neutral energy source (like the sun, or money) which can be harnessed by humans to either destroy or create.
We blame and praise the Internet constantly for its impact, but when we do so, we speak of it as if it is something separate from us, when really it is just US. It is nothing but a portrait of us, in all our meanness and all our goodness.” – Elizabeth Gilbert 2014
