“I’m hoping all this local discourse in the tail end of 2016, on how we talk about people online, and our simplistic, public deductions, is some kind of sea change in human decency. Because I’m terrified of a generation growing up thinking it’s normal to tear into people you’ve never even met, and doing so with half-informed convictions. I find it terrifying that people I admire won’t go into politics or write journalism non-anonymously, or take a public job because it makes them prey to simplified deductions and online mob mentality, in a world where the other side of the story is effectively redacted by disproportionate rage.” – Hopeful and Terrified[rns_reactions]
