With all these sites that let people share well, basically anything I feel that most people get distracted by all the things other post, and most of these things are pretty stupid. Another point is the comment sections of things. It's a place where If you put your opinion, it could start a flame war, one of the most annoying things in a comment section. All people do is argue and sometimes it's hardly even a legitimate subject. Memes used to be a funny little thing that you would look at and laugh, NOW it's all people talk about. In real life where ever I go I hear someone say something like, "I'm too pro sweg", or go up to someone and yell " what are those?" So in conclusion, all the idiotic things that are on the Internet are starting to affect people in the real world.

I propose that the Internet is a virtuous technology that has helped humanity. Your argument is centered around a majority-equals-absolute view. In other words, you claim that because some aspects of the Internet may not be productive, all aspects of the Internet are unproductive.

The Internet is defined as "a vast computer network linking smaller computer networks worldwide." In other words, it links multiple devices together. It is the key to sharing knowledge, sharing ideas, and making progress. It has led to massive changes in industry, society, and daily life. It has opened up whole new fields and created whole new possibilities for humans.

The very fact that the Internet involves efficient, large-scale communication of ideas makes it an ideal tool for a large-scale population to use for advancements. It allows us to express ourselves, to learn, and to improve our own lives.
