You can observe a lot by just watching.

If the centre does not hold it's because it's made of nougat.

We simply aren’t equipped for rational debate in the world we’ve created, where information moves so fast, and where our perception is shaped by the platforms we have built to deliver that information. Platforms which are actively manipulating us, polarising us, algorithmically radicalising us.

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc — they all know how they are warping our perception, shaping our opinions, setting us against each other with greater and greater intolerance and vitriol. That’s the whole point. They want us engaged. Content like the original thread thrives in this environment, it takes no time at all to engage with it, share it, see that it reinforces your bias, use it as a weapon.

Whereas a lengthy, four-part examination of it is just tilting at windmills.

In 1960s garage rock, the fuzz of guitar distortion, raucous experimentation of unencumbered vocal timbres, and a simplicity of fourths-based harmonic construction contributed to a sensibility that musicologist Michael Hicks has dubbed “avant-garage” for its sense of homegrown, communal antagonism. Bob Dylan, drawing upon an emphasis on informality among his folk-revival milieu, blurred the lines between studio construction and performance by including a clumsy, laugh-ridden false start in the album release of “Bob Dylan’s 115th Dream” on Bringing It All Back Home (1965). Later, Dylan’s unfinished musical dawdling was transformed into musical legend through the bootleg circulation (and later commercial release) of his late-1960s basement tapes with the Band.
