In today’s world it seems even supposed “peaceful” protest simply evolves into people yelling and neither side listening. Hopefully a platform like “gell” will allow for the civil dialogue, listening and cohesive solutions. I don’t think our society is as divided as the two extremes want us to believe. It seems rational people don’t currently have a place for productive discussion. Currently social media platforms and print journalism consistently allow for sensationalized or misrepresented facts. If we can’t start a conversation with factual data it will be nearly impossible to find accord.
It is definitely worth a try. Hopefully a more formal platform such as this will be a deterrent to trollism and provocation.
We have to be willing to listen.
Hate speak can move past free speech to being dangerous to public safety very quickly.
Yes, misinformation, intentional and non intentional, group think and political agendas make it almost impossible to find common accord on social media if you have even the slightest dissenting view point.
Social media platforms should be regulated to the point they are required to operate in truth, transparency, and for the good of our communities. Social media platforms should be held to the same libel and defamation standards as are the rest of society.
