That’s a really interesting point, Clare, and thanks for your comment. I wonder if technology, and the speed at which it enables us to operate, to publicly make decisions, criticise, judge others, etc., is generally at odds with empathy as an emotion. Are there other emotional reactions that technology might affect, either positively or negatively?
Jon Ronson wrote an excellent book on how social media has changed our experience of shame and our shaming of others, and I’ve heard a lot recently about virtue signalling and similar ideas. Hmmm… lots to think about!
