In a very recent news article I read, the headline stated: “Nearly half of Americans think they’re a better person than EVERYONE they know!”
I personally think this is shocking and sad because it is so spiritually damaging. I feel that it is due in large part to the influence of big tech and the way in which they affect society by eroding the finer values needed to help us live a more peaceful and happier life. The ex-Google employee and Big Tech critic Tristan Harris, recently testified before the US Congress and said the business model of big social media companies “is to create a society that is addicted, outraged, polarized, performative and disinformed. That’s just the fundamentals of how it works.”
We explore how this erosion of the quality of humility in people contributes to their unhappiness.
