Network tech is a boon and a bane for politics and democracy. Not being exhaustive about this, but it helps me now by giving me a way to do a little something in what I take as a serious situation, besides voting and making pitiful cash contributions. I can promote my causes as well as try to give to qualifies comment.

However, the net is a performative and not a contemplative facility. The contributes to deteriorated thinking, character, and of civil society. It dissipates argument and makes it easy to move material around without really thinking about it. I recognize that I need to learn a new discipline to use utilities wisely without hurting myself or others.

Still I am trying to do both at the same time. So please forgive me.
