That is a question that should not be answered by technology companies alone, but rather by societies around the world. Thus, this site is not about answering that question, but about discussing measures that need to be taken so that societies can truly create answers to that question and be empowered to put those answers into actions.
We base this on the observation that technologies creates rules that guide behavior, but to a great extent people haven’t had much of an influence on how these rules are made. Democracies can influence those rules if they directly engage in creating technologies with a democratic mandate rather than just a commercial mandate. Technologies created may become Normative Technologies.
