Can the Internet Foster Intelligent Conversation?

Can the Internet foster smart discussion and aid to form ethical beliefs and brand-new concepts?
This is absolutely nothing brand-new as there are constantly individuals assaulting me for one cause or another. I have to confess that I’ve never ever actually gotten much out of politics, or economics which politics appears to be primarily focused on. For some factor I got into a discussion with this fellow and the resulting experience impacted me exceptionally.
If his political group is appropriate to this post however I will discuss it is based around a U.S. Democrat called Lyndon Larouche, I do not understand. The man was informing me in information about how today world economy based around George Bush’s American system is predestined for failure and triggering much problem on the planet. This I concurred with totally as I can’t think of or excuse costs substantial quantities of energy on eliminating individuals in a war as being a favorable act.
He stated that the secret to developing a brand-new ethically upstanding world society we will require people to as soon as again believe for themselves and alter the existing financial structures that manage life on earth. He provided the impression that individuals like King are the fantastic transformers of beliefs in society, and that just really awakened souls will be delighted when they pass away.
I do believe that life and love are extremely crucial concepts to focus on when one is growing spiritually. I chose to sign the group’s list and get a little bit more details so as to truly make up my viewpoint about these matters that I understand so little about (politics and economics). I stated that as I am an author I do not like being disrupted by the phone ringing and that I ‘d rather interact through the Internet.
The guy was noticeably upset and stated that the Internet was not an excellent location for individuals to exchange concepts and have discussions. He paradoxically sounded a little like the fascists that he did not like so much when he answered back that no fantastic concepts had actually ever come from individuals on the Internet, and for that matter, a ‘genuine’ discussion in between individuals had actually to be performed face to deal with.
I informed him that the Internet was simply a basic tool of interaction that was bringing people more detailed together. I then discussed that the Internet was doing precisely what he felt was needed for society to grow in the future; it is offering voice to people’ concepts like never ever prior to in human history. Individuals are no longer required to believe of other citizenships as different ‘types’ of individuals that one need to guide away from.
By this time the person had actually ended up being really angry and stated emphatically that there is absolutely nothing incorrect with having different countries. He then opposed himself and concurred with me by stating that the ‘Em pire’ just wished to ‘dominate and divide’ and split nations into even smaller sized entities that might then be taken control of. I responded gently that procedure undoubtedly produced more unneeded borders in between fellow human beings.
The bottom line that stuck to me after the discussion ended was the reality that it was the discussing of the Internet as a favorable medium for interaction and knowledge that so seriously disturb the person. I think no matter how well-informed about the world and sure of yourself that you are, if there are things that you are still uninformed of, or in this case narrow-minded to since of some unreasonable worry; like a link that snaps in a chain, so will your peace and calm will be shattered by lack of knowledge and anger.
Spirituality and morality can be gone over on various mediums … Economics and politics should be the very same.
