The age of unenlightenment: An inflated sense of our own wisdom is making us dumber and less civil. Can the experts bring us back into line?
The internet promotes consumer freedom. It gives us all the information we want. Unfortunately it can also suppress the freedom of the citizen, by limiting exposure to the full range of information citizens may not want — but absolutely need. The ability to customise our informational environment, delivered by social media, makes it less likely that citizens will come across information that would change their minds or have chance encounters with perspectives different from their own.

The epistemic prisons we build for ourselves do worse than lock us into the views we currently have, while protecting our dumbest ideas from revision. As Sunstein shows in his review of the experimental evidence, they tend to make our views more extreme. Online, the views of a few individuals can create cascades of information and opinion. Insulated digital communities tend to become more isolated and their views become more extreme. The moderate form of this syndrome results in an electorate characterised by mutual suspicion and incomprehension. Its ultimate form incubates terrorist cells.
