Draft Writing of the Introduction:
From the inception of the internet, there were strongly held beliefs that it could serve utopian interests within human society. As it’s reach has continued to expand throughout the 21st century, these ideals have collapsed, with cynicism and distrust taking prevalence. The Open Internet of Silicon Valley seeks to differentiate itself from the surveillance based systems elsewhere, though ultimately falls short in it’s attempt to do so due to regulation and platform moderation.
