Is modern technology reducing our critical thinking by "just" affirming or confirming our preferences?
In a world where most of everything is automated I fear that my opinion is more and more streamlined not only because of media spinning but also because controversial opinions, statements, books, articles etc. are simply not provided (strange word... or rather recommended) any more... Amazon will show plenty of books or music similar to my last choices and seeming preferences... Facebook is filtering out non-conform friends.
Are we oversimplifying our live using modern technology, are we actually outsourcing our opinion making?
