On this episode of Changed My Mind, the singer, songwriter and humanitarian activist Peter Gabriel talks about how his attitude to the internet has shifted over time.
"I'm beginning to believe that technology and the internet which I've praised, loved and fought for, needs to be thought about a lot more carefully, because it has the oppertunity of keeping us in this super stimulated sex and violence mode," he tells host Alison Goldsworthy.
Gabriel also discusses his worries about the impact the internet is having on democracies and the role music could play in depolarization.
Changed My Mind is produced by openDemocracy in conjunction with The Depolarization Project as part of our commitment to educate citizens, challenge power and encourage democratic debate. Hosted by Ali Goldsworthy, Laura Osborne and Alex Chesterfield.
