Let’s put this another way: We as humans are addicted to being right. This is driven by fear, insecurities and a host of complex emotions. We will die in a ditch to be right about which way the toilet paper is installed. The Internet simply lets us suck on the collective teat of self-righteousness because gee, look, “everybody” agrees with me. This creates vast numbers of emotional infants, utterly incapable of handling disagreements, debate, discourse about anything that even slightly deviates from their world view.
