WEF 2018 Highlights: Democracy not just a political system but a way of living, says PM Modi at...

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday while speaking at the plenary session of World Economic Forum (WEF) on Tuesday in Davos, Switzerland said that India has always believed in values of integration and unity, 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam' which means the entire world is one family. It is relevant to bridge distances. This year the topic here is 'Creating a shared future in a fractured world'. New powers are changing the balance between Economic and Political strength. This is indicating a change in future of the world. The world is facing challenges in maintaining peace, stability, and security.

The last time an Indian PM came to Davos was in 1997, when Deve Gowda had come. That time our GDP was little more than 400 billion dollars, now its more than 6 times. In 1997, a bird used to tweet but now humans are tweeting. Speaking on technology and the importance of data, PM Modi said, "In today's world, data is the biggest asset, it is because of the emergence of data that so many opportunities are being created and so there are as many challenges."  "Change in India's ranking is an indicator that the people in India have warmly welcomed the change in policies as the road to a better future for them," PM Modi added

Facebook Admits Social Media Can Have A Negative Impact On Democracy

In a series of online posts, Facebook recently admitted that social media can have a negative impact on democracy.

Facebook acknowledged on Monday that social media can have a negative impact on democracy, reports the Washington Post. As part of its 'Hard Questions' series, the site published a number of posts regarding the platform's impacts on elections, politics, and perceptions.  In one, Katie Harbath, Facebook's director of global politics and government outreach, writes, "From the Arab Spring to robust elections around the globe, social media seemed like a positive." "The last US presidential campaign changed that, with foreign interference that Facebook should have been quicker to identify to the rise of 'fake news' and echo chambers," Harbath further commented. Plans moving forward include surveying people about which news sources they deem most reliable and changing feeds at large to focus more on friends and family, reports The Verge. Cass R. Sunstein, a Harvard Law School professor, featured as a guest commentator in Facebook's social media and democracy series, questions if either of those moves will make a significant impact in how people consume and react to shared information regarding politics. He notes that Facebook's efforts to provide each user with "the most personalized experience," is, "from the standpoint of democracy…a nightmare." Exposure to information outside of one's comfort zone, says the professor, can "ensure against fragmentation, polarization, and extremism, which are predictable outcomes of any situation in which like-minded people speak only with themselves." Facebook acknowledges that, though it is going to try, it may not be able to fully stanch the flow of "fake news." Samidh Chakrabarti, the company's manager of civic engagement, notes, "Even with all these countermeasures, the battle will never end."

democracy.

democracy is like 2500 years ago an elitist form of organised criminal exploitation of the population. It is clear seen that todays democracy is a form of feudalism. In the US, Canada, England, Australia, Israel the so called democracy is absolute clear dictatorship. Even in switzerland it is only a superficial makeup democracy witch is neutralised trough criminal backdoor politics.
