We remain Indians! We import our non-libertarian thoughts on the digital outlets.

Advances in digital domain allow for users to express and create content. Instances being Blogs, Social Networking, Media sharing websites. Creators (formerly known as audiences) openly share content, which is no different than the ones exchanged in "off-digital" world. Often, this content reflects non-tolerant views that most of us in the society enjoy flaunting. For instance, a post related to Cricket from one of our neighbouring countries (formerly part of our boundaries) is almost always sneered at leading to a show of "one up-manship". Ergo, a bigot is going to force their one-sided views on sensitive topics to rile up the readers. Technologies, expectedly, are not going to "upload" thoughts in that person's mind to make them consider divergent views. But a fair expectation from the categories of applications, mentioned above, is that they go beyond than providing facilities for mere "liking" or "sharing" or allowing for a fleeting "comment". They need to support "dialoguing" so that the topical issue can be discussed in its entirety.
