I quite agree with you Mr. Al. In deed "Golden Rule" has been emphasized in virtually all religions.

Valentine: Seems to me social media is a cyberworld medium for world-wide interconnected-near instantaneous transmission and reception of Individual Thoughts and Possible Dialogue so that, potentially,  "both parties can appreciate their point of view."  However the parties, need to first of all, "listen and receive the messages being transmitted and second "know the facts which the other man seem important" e.g., the common acceptance of the "Golden Rule" in:many religions and the "common good".

Mr. Al. can social media/cybermatic ideas provide a level playing ground of understanding such that both parties can appreciate their point of view?

University of Washington's Professor Stephen Gardiner discusses the ethics of climate change from intergenerational, political, and personal perspectives.
