“How Can The Increase In Access To The Internet Among Low-Income Communities Help To Promote Social And Economic Development?” (Quora)
With the help of the Internet, every person in the world can access unlimited sources of information almost at no cost. This means is equal for everyone all around the world. Even though the human ego is behind its development, nevertheless it is bound to awaken in us an understanding of humanity as an interconnected single body. Through increasing awareness about our true state as an interconnected humanity, I hope that we will experience positive global transformation, as quickly as possible, even in our days.
In the end, information, communications and technology might not achieve socio-economic development of the poorer layers of the world’s population, but we will understand that we must change our attitude to the world and to our connections—from egoistic to altruistic.
As such, we will become equal. We cannot remain in the illusion that if we will now divide everything equally, then the world will change. Such a division will not lead to beneficial changes in the world. We have already seen how this happens. By doing so, we only interfere with people working and developing. On the contrary, we need to bring a new realization to people, according to which everyone should be treated as a single family, altruistically. We will then make the world equal, happy and perfect.
