The internet is emotionally abusing us. And we can't quit it.

Algorithms and propagandists exploit the human instinct to connect to play us.

  • We invest trillions in companies that develop algorithms designed to play us for the sake of profits.
  • Facebook algorithms, for instance, show us content that will provoke emotional responses.
  • The algorithms look for "exploits" in humans, find how we establish rapport with others, and leverage it for marketing.
