Rebel Entrepreneurs. Imperial bureaucrats. Wookies. Not so long ago in a galaxy that feels oddly familiar, a battle for the future of the sharing economy rages on. Created with EconStories, Share Wars is the newest Artists 4 America project.
At college campuses all across the country, free speech rights are being removed, speakers are being shut down, and students are sent to safe zones to speak their minds. Isn’t the point of attending college to expose students to a variety of subjects, perspectives and opportunities in which to learn, debate and engage in constructive dialogue? Or has our overzealous PC culture altered campus life forever?
Over the past decade, everything around us has been radically reshaped by technology. Our phones, our automobiles, even our classrooms…Okay, maybe not our classrooms. The truth is that American schools haven’t really changed in the past 100 years – we still sit in rows, still have to raise our hands, still receive the same letter grades, so what gives?
Have you ever been bullied? Or maybe you were the bully? Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat have made it easier than ever for people to say whatever they want anonymously. But how far is too far when it comes to using free speech online? In this video, featuring Em Ford, we explore free speech vs. hate speech in the world of social media.
