Maynard James Keenan (Tool, Puscifer, Etc.): “I Feel Like Social Media And The Internet Has Really Driven A Wedge In Between People”

Metal Hammer have newly published an interview online that was conducted this past fall with Puscifer. In it, the band’s frontman Maynard James Keenan (also of Tool & A Perfect Circle fame) weighs in on how social media and the algorithms behind it seem programmed to sow division. He stated of that:

“I feel like social media and the internet has really driven a wedge in between people. Just the whole concept of liking a thing, or not liking a thing, and then having whatever you see for the next several months be exactly what you wanna see and not what you don’t wanna see. It’s like staring into a mirror, very narcissistic, and it’s not very healthy. So that division gets wider and wider, the polarisation; every conversation online starts with an argument.”
