CYBERETHICS: THE NEXUS OF CYBER LAW AND ETHICS

If you encounter online or was personally directed this twitter post “Do the world a favor, kill yourself. P.S. Have a nice day“[1], how will this impact to you as an individual? Perhaps, you may feel assaulted, annoyed or threatened or you might just not mind it or just tweet #AlDubYou [2].  We have to admit that across the internet lies the temptation or simply, an option to cause an action, a reaction,or  to stress a point,  to cause some distress  or  plainly, purposely sought to harm another. And we build conflicts along the way that develop to a cycle, that spreads and escalates online affecting vulnerable and unseen targets, a cycle of indifference, a web of wrongs, if not a culture of criminal minds. We are so exposed to the many threats this online world offers. We may keep quiet, abort from the cyberspace or just simply escape. But where does freedom really lie? Others pose that right to self expression should not be hampered by certain limitations as rules or laws regulating the social media.

And I mean even the differently able! Have bad vision or poor eyesight? Use the app ULTIMeyes to improve your eyesight. Have poor hearing? Download HearYouNow and amplify the sounds! Virtually all of society can do participate in the online world regardless of age and ability. Saint Paul during his time had to adjust just to immerse and adapt. We Catholics even with the fast moving world now have the opportunity for online evangelization even on our spare time and free time. During the recently held fourth instalment of the Catholic Social Media Summit in Santa Rosa, Laguna the theme, “Plugged In” is actually an open invitation to everyone to join and be an online missionary. It is a call for a movement to Christianize cyberspace. Serving the Church has never been this exciting. It is time to tell the world that the...
