5. Problem is so many people not used to using the internet, fall prey to internet conspiracies

I am starting to think that everyone should have a license to use the internet responsibly. Either that or we start regulating Facebook, Youtube, and other companies and holding them responsible for the content on their platforms.

I remember back in the day, the worst I had to worry about when my mom first started using the internet was a letter from an African Prince. Now there's all kinds of nonsense, and folks get sucked in so easily. I think if my mother was just starting to use the internet today, I would be worried. QAnon is full of folks that were new to the internet.

But I do agree that folks should have more access.
