๐Ÿ‘ An Avalanche of Speech Can Bury Democracy

Liked An Avalanche of Speech Can Bury Democracy (POLITICO Magazine)

Itโ€™s not speech per se that allows democracies to function, but the ability to agreeโ€”eventually, at least some of the timeโ€”on what is true, what is important and what serves the public good. This doesnโ€™t mean everyone must agree on every fact, or that our priorities are necessarily uniform. But democracy canโ€™t operate completely unmoored from a common ground, and certainly not in a sea of distractions.
