The Dutch and Duchess of Sussex Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been making required efforts to bring a change in the nature of the society and generality of intolerance in the digital landscape.
In regard to this, Prince Harry penned a public warning against the platforms’ impact of spreading misleading information.
On Thursday, Fast Company published an op-ed illustrating how Prince Harry and his wife have been stepping ahead to transform the societies and public disclosures.
Prince Harry wrote- “A little over four weeks ago, my wife and I started calling business leaders, heads of major corporations, and chief marketing officers at brands and organisations we all use in our daily lives,” Source: ET Online.
Further, he wrote- “Our message was clear: The digital landscape is unwell, and companies like yours have the chance to reconsider your role in funding and supporting online platforms that have contributed to, stoked, and created the conditions for a crisis of hate, a crisis of health, and a crisis of truth.” Source: ET Online.
He elaborated that after a lot of debates and discussions, they got the association of experts. At last, they came to a conclusion that the society requires to “remodel the architecture of our online community in a way defined more by compassion than hate; by truth instead of misinformation; by equity and inclusiveness instead of injustice and fear mongering; by free, rather than weaponised, speech.” Source: ET Online.
The Prince explained how the concept of “remodeling” includes bringing a change in the “industry leaders” who willingly want to draw “a line in the sand against unacceptable online practices.” Source: ET Online.
“Because, if we are susceptible to the coercive forces in digital spaces, then we have to ask ourselves—what does this mean for our children? As a father, this is especially concerning to me,” He added. Source: ET Online.
