We are watching our ability to be civilized getting hollowed out before our eyes. It is amazing how fragile it is.
It’s our fault. The fact that Russian internet trolls were able to influence the election, the fact that those who spread political divisiveness can use stories that are made up or exaggerated and get them seen far and wide, the fact that violent groups can get their message across to so many more susceptible minds than in the past, all of that is because we use social media so much.
