THE PROBLEM WITH THE INTERNET IS WE THINK IT IS THE REAL WORLD

It's not.  It's not real conversation with real people, face to face.

Cool to order stuff from Amazon.

Not a cool thing to run a family nor a government on.

I agree, though it can foster contact with people with whom we might have otherwise lost touch.  Facebook has helped me to keep in touch with distant relatives and old friends, and Instagram enables me to keep in constant touch with my daughters who live in another state and another country. I love seeing what they are doing and keeping in touch via texts, social media and and Facetime. I can also research multiple opinions on issues rather than just the one my newspapaer chooses to report! I agree though, we need to monitor fake news, and to seek out real people to enjoy time with 🙂
