Precisely. Reductive solutions to consensus problems are regressive. From “The Content Police”:

Web 2.0 eliminated so much friction for the consumer, user generated content, information access, etc. Much like the printing press before it, frictionless consumer tech has huge upside that’s partially offset by inherent downside, but it’s still better than the era from which we’re emerging — wherein our information diets were rationed by a few white men in a few coastal cities…

The subjective/manual/human/editorial era has been succeeded by the objective/automatic/algorithm/curation era. These are extremes on the spectrum of information dissemination approaches... point is that solutions need be careful so as not to encourage wading further into one extreme or another. Regardless, as the printing press and the industrial revolution showed us, it’s still Day 1 of this modern renaissance.
