Technology v society
How our technology is constructed and the way we use it is a product of IRL American society & the countries that emulate it.
If you want to break the cycle, you have to listen to people you wouldn't normally and examine the wider sociological and political ramifications of what you're creating.
You also need to be aware that you cannot fix complex societal problems with some cleverly-written computer code you wrote on your laptop. Activism requires a *lot* more than that.
