I would call it a general problem of globalisation. Connecting everyone
everywhere brings it's set of challenges. To satisfy an ever growing global
demand we need complex tools that we humans operate with a brain that for
the majority of human existence was used to deal with local issues. I
believe we need to get back to focusing more on local markets and providing
local solutions. Ofc stupidity can occur anywhere but at a local level the
impact is only felt locally.
