Our societies are going through a long historical process of transformation between traditional societies to modern ones. A few centuries ago, life was generally guided by agriculture, families, religions, and traditions. But since the First Industrial Revolution, our societies have been constantly shaken by new technological disruptions and political orders.
Whereas our ancestors used to work in fields, surrounded by numerous family members, we tend now to live in small households and spend a lot of time in front of computers. Further technological revolutions will surely disrupt our world again, bringing innovations, and adding more complexity to a world we hardly understand.
In the face of invasive algorithms, growing interconnection, and complexity, our political values and moral goals seem to be more and more overruled by the invisible rules of the global markets.
