The internet has shaped modern life in too many ways to count. It places infinite amounts of information at our fingertips — and enables anyone with a computer to broadcast their opinions around the world. It allows each of us to connect with people we’ve never met, both in common interests and in heated online arguments.
There’s no getting around it: the internet affects our social lives both individually and globally. In your opinion, are these effects primarily positive (leading to an increased cultural awareness and solidarity) or negative (exaggerating tensions between cultures that don’t see eye-to-eye)? Take a position and argue your point. Historical references, current events, anecdotes, and philosophy are all fair game. Be as specific and persuasive as possible. You could win a $1,000 scholarship toward your college expenses.
