The Divide is a cautionary tale about the negative effects of tribalism and how social media is amplifying tribalism in society today. The story follows the protagonist as he watches his reality become a bubble of his own views, crumpling up his friends and community around him, leaving him trapped in his own echo chamber. If reality had an algorithm would it make the world a better place?
