I’ve read posts prophecying that the Covid experience has changed society forever to be more caring and outward-looking.
Call me an old cynic; I have yet to be convinced.
Wishful thinking aside, I can forsee some benefits from our year, or more, living in cyberspace.
Older people, many of whom were previously tech-shy, are now proficient in Skype, Facebook and Zoom.
Younger generations, having been forced online to learn and interact, will be relieved to get away from the computer.
It will become the tool it was intended to be and not a way of life.
As a consequence, I sincerely hope that when we resume some semblance of our lives, those sad ‘anonymous’ people who spew bile and spread hate on social media will have only each other to commune with.
But that is wishful thinking. . .
