👍 An Avalanche of Speech Can Bury Democracy

Liked An Avalanche of Speech Can Bury Democracy (POLITICO Magazine)
It’s not speech per se that allows democracies to function, but the ability to agree—eventually, at least some of the time—on what is true, what is important and what serves the public good. This doesn’t mean everyone must agree on every fact, or that our priorities are necessarily uniform. But democracy can’t operate completely unmoored from a common ground, and certainly not in a sea of distractions.
