Social media has been blamed by the neo-liberal Hilary loving elites for the dumbing down as they see of society.
But we gotta use our brains when using social media and not behave like headless neo-liberals eunning around in circles or Trumpeters cheering mindlessly.
the beauty of social media is that it can enable us to explore other points of view, with an ease that our geographically far-flung ancestors could never have dreamed of. Technology has fragmented us; but it still has the ability to create new connections — as Stone hoped. Or it does if we use our brains when we switch on our phones. And that applies to liberals as much as to anyone else.
