The internet is one giant melting pot. It's amazing. People from all over the world can communicate instantly anywhere and at anytime. It's a tool that allows us to educate ourselves and each other, to inspire debate and bring us closer together. It lets families stay close and friends to keep in touch. It really is a place that could let humanity improve itself.
Except... that's not really what we use it for. Yeah some people do. But I don't know about you, I use it to look at pictures of cats, dogs and alpacas (that last one might just be me) while keeping a close eye on the worst specimens the human race has ever produced. That last one is courtesy of that whole melting pot thing. You see terrible people don't actually know they're terrible. They just post their nonsense while being completely oblivious to what others actually see.
Thank God for these people. They're God damned hilarious.
