Social Media And Activism
Social media, as it relates to politics, has given a voice to the voiceless. No longer are we enslaved by the narratives and news cycles driven by traditional media. No longer must we be unwitting victims of smear tactics by political campaigns. We were able to overcome the revolting amounts of spending brought on by Citizens United. We did that by using our instant access to The Truth. We now have a seat at the table; we now have the ability to hijack the narrative and re-direct it, in real time, as we the people see fit. This is the future of our democracy. This is how we regain control of our government. This is how we will hold our elected officials accountable, and this tide cannot be turned back.
What’s important now is that we acknowledge that, and stay engaged. We cannot surrender our scrutiny. Rather, we should seize upon our new-found power, build on it, and recognize that we have reached a point in our nation’s history where the halls of power are no longer just inside The Beltway or our state capitals. They are in our living rooms, our dorm rooms, at our kitchen tables. They are at our very fingertips.
