    This highlights the fascinating point in history we are at. For so long, the educated elite were the only ones who had a say and were able to shape events. And then, rightfully so, over the last few hundred years we’ve been steadily moving to give more and more people a voice. No doubt, it’s been a fantastic development, but now we are seeing one of its drawbacks.

Just write a comment or tweet it and your opinion might just be treated like fact no matter how ignorant or cruel or damaging it might be. Unfortunately, I think we’re just going to have to live with it.
