The internet is not the real world, it’s only a part of it.
Yes, society has advanced to the point where the internet and technology is an integral part of it. However, it is only a tool, not a virtual reality that exists in place of the one that is outside the confines of your domicile. It’s where you can tailor your experiences and not be bothered by things and ideas that make you uncomfortable. It’s where people become emboldened by anonymity to be and say things they would most certainly not under any other circumstance. You can tell someone to kill themselves and “get away” unscathed.
In the real world, consequences are immediate and accountability is expected.
