There used to be a dream that technology would be the great equalizer. From social media democratizing national and global discourse to new technology simplifying elections to computer algorithms cutting through prejudice. But that hasn’t panned out: social media is ripping our social fabric to shreds, elections are under constant siege, and our technology is perpetuating rather than eliminating biases.

You get the sense that we had a bit too much confidence in the cleansing power of the electronic microchip.
