It is true that those who work exclusively on computers can see it that way (it is my case). But what about manual workers, social workers (education, health)?
Also, I don't know if cutting yourself off from one part of the world will help keep your eyes open to see the reality of others, of the world ...
But il could be a part of the solution, but only on a voluntary basis...
