NBC’s Brian Williams on Social Media

He says, “I have another theory that the growth of self, all things self, has taken away our spirit of community.”

It’s an interesting point. When the “I” becomes more important than the “we”, the self becomes even more selfish than usual.

Could it explain the seeming rise in the lack of civil discourse? We can’t seem to see other points of views any more or compromise for “the good of the country” or tolerate (even celebrate) others’ differences.

Is it because of the “growth of self”?
