I have emptied truckloads of scorn into the intersection where social media absorption, moral posturing and “the personal is political” narcissism all meet, and so I’m always cheered to discover that better minds than my own had already arrived independently at similar conclusions and voiced them more eloquently, as was the case while I finished reading Evgeny Morozov’s The Net Delusion last night. But rather than try to excerpt all the good parts in this case, I will instead urge you to read what he has to say, starting with the section entitled “Poking Kierkegaard” on page 184 and finishing at the end of “Killing the Slacktivist In You” on page 191. Go on, now, it’s good stuff. There may be a test later.
