On a recent trip abroad, one lesson I learned from the people I stayed with in southern Jordan was the power and widespread affect of an almost radical amount hospitality. This often translated to a sense of love that our fellow travelers felt during their stays at this family's home. This hospitality or love for someone needing help, seeking refuge, or just needing a place to stay underpins the entire Jordanian culture.
As a quick note - I'm not talking about religious love, but simply an outward show of love and care.
This got me thinking, and let me know your view on this, what if we as power users or people on the internet worked to show more compassion. It's been shown to spread better than hate or malice. This can be on the clear net, the dark net, or on decentralized nets like this one. What happens if we flood servers with content of love, humility, and acts of good. This doesn't mean ignore the bad things or to not solve the problems that are present, but to do so with compassion.
I know even in my short time blogging on this platform and my time on other platforms as well as at work, that it's easy to magnify the awful and gruesome. But that happens in the news enough...
How will this spread if cyberspace gets better morals and acts out of kindness and the good of others? Ethical Hackers hopefully act out of good intent and have been working to solve problems in software and better secure the our networks. Love isn't just a soft, weak thing that we feel, but can be strong and durable.
I'm sorry if this is too religious or lofty sounding, but it's an idea I've been milling over and wanted new perspectives.
