The influence of technology on the formation of values, ideological and political values of youth: A cognitive dimension of the impact of anti-terrorist orientation sites [La influencia de la tecnología en la formación de valores, valores ideológicos y polí- ticos de la juventud: Una dimensión cognitiva del impacto de los sitios de orientación anti-terroristas]

The most important qualitative features of the new virtual reality are its globality and interactivity. The Internet does not recognize the conventions of state sovereignty, forms of political participation, hierarchical structures, political parties and other institutional subjects of politics. The political consequences of using the network are contradictory and ambiguous. On the one hand, the Internet allows you to remove the geographical and structural limitations of direct political participation, collective action, to remove the distance between citizens and decision-makers, to expand the horizons of a culture of citizenship. On the other hand, it must be borne in mind that modern information technologies, as their sphere of application expands in everyday life, makes society more vulnerable to political control, contributes to the building and improvement of instruments of political domination, creates the potential for authoritarian socialization and manipulative influence on the individual, the extremist and even terrorist organizations to seize a wide information field. In this respect, to a certain extent, the development of new information technologies now challenges the interests of public and state security. The multifaceted problem of regulating these processes has technical, political, moral, economic and legal and, of course, psychological aspects. © 2018, Universidad del Zulia. All rights reserved.
