Back when the Internet first came to be, there was the belief that the result would be more facts, less censorship, more intelligent discourse and less successful manipulation. Being able to converse with each other would lead people to be more honest, and our world increasingly would resemble a utopian ideal of peace and prosperity. Now, decades later, "fake news" has proliferated, censorship is growing stronger, and rather than having politicians who can't handle the truth, we seem to have politicians who have no idea what the truth is.
