Documentary interviewee says the Internet was supposed to be this place to freely and openly share ideas, but the technology enables hate crimes, stalking, and abuse.

Now, I'd argue the corporate internet algorithms manipulate people to spend time on their platforms. This means the controversial stuff gets recommended. Those of us who dislike it find our way here to an open and free space.

Many people walk away from politics and voting because it is not free and open as advertised as well.

The internet didn't change how people interact. 4chan and other forums on the web have corporations behind them. Whether it's advertising or hosting fees, corporations are profiting from hate and abuse.
