With the swelling of modern technology, we are approaching an age in which accessibility to information is increasing. Of course, the information is produced by us and is received by us. No doubt a symptom of postmodernism.
This information dispersal is married with social climate; so even one's identity becomes convoluted in the sea of communication. So you have multiple identities, and your neighbor has multiple identities, and celebrities have multiple identities, and politicians have multiple identities. The deceiver's finery is worn briefly, but always at the opportune moment.
And of course, this impacts our lives on a grand scale as long as we are exposed to forms of disseminated communication. We are no longer valued by who we are, but by what we say. Just as politicians are elected not for what they have done, but by what they say they will do.
Sure, we have always been like this by a marginal extent, but with an increasing population and an increasing communication utility, the habit naturally increases.
Ever since NASA took photos of Earth, we have been global thinkers. How will this affect the world in general?
