The political paradox and dilemmas of the digital society

Technology is not morally neutral. It is often said, ‘A gun doesn’t kill - a man does’. What is meant by it is - not a gun in itself is bad or to blame. However, in recent times, there have been claims that some algorithms are morally bad or even evil. They seem to be racist and discriminatory. Ethical, social and political analysis of contemporary digital technology is in full swing. Digital changes are less and less a technical matter. The problem is their economic effects, in particular, the acquisition of immense political power. Digital giants determine what is true and what is a lie. They become non-elected rulers of the world.
