In a startling turn of events, it seems that empathy has developed on the internet.
This transition has completely baffled University of Washington sociologists and and there has been an immediate increase in funding to study this amazing phenomenon. Dr. Ingra Ternett expresses her disbelief at what is happening across websites all across the web. "We never had people being nice and considerate online before. It was a medium for scathing ad hominem attacks and a release of bitter frustrations against people usually with no foundation, but this is changing. In my latest study, I pretended to be a conservative, deaf homosexual and adherent of Judaism, but instead of vicious attacks on my person I was met with compassion and consideration. People offered me help and ways to live my life to the fullest instead of making me out to be a non-person who deserves the most excruciating torture, shame, and misery. Why they didn't treat me like that is completely novel and fascinating."
"This revolution has new and wonderful implications for the internet," says UCLA evolutionary biologist Jared Diamondback. "The internet was spiraling downward and we estimated that within the next fifteen years the vitriol would cause its demise but this twist is a wonderful change that will foster the exchange of human experience."
Indeed, it is estimated that with the attitudes of people changing the ability to spread information will be unprecedented. No longer are people spreading baseless attacks against politicians and religions, but instead are encouraging education and forming learned, intelligent opinions. It's a remarkable and refreshing change of events and the breadth of human knowledge and experience can be available to all people with access to the internet without the intense emotional scarring that was the norm.
University of Chicago Emeritus professor Dr. Cumin Scents had an opinion of his own: "perhaps everybody's finally tired of all the bullshit."
