Excerpt: "I think that there is a role that social media is playing in this. Which shines a light in weaknesses in our democracy in a very unhelpful way. Umm, so social media creates these easily manipulated narratives which allow us to inflate emotions and subvert, umm, dialogue and discussion like you and I are having right now. Cuz if you and I were talking and neither of us were listening to the other person the discussion would have very little value." - Aaron Philip
