What are the consequences of technology on our human behavior? What are social media companies and robots doing to our anthropology, our politics, our vices, or sexual reproduction? James Poulos is the Executive Editor of The American Mind, an online publication of the Claremont Institute. He joins Ben Domenech on the Federalist Radio Hour for a conversation on American life in the digital age.
“I think that there is a prevalent and sincere belief that people are bad and they cannot be trusted to communicate with each other in an uncontrollable way,” Poulos said. “There is genuine fear that the only way to hold a peaceful world together in a digital age is to build robot masters that are programed with a woke religion to ensure people are pure and virtuous.”
