Thread: Reading The Revolt Of The Public And The Crisis Of Authority In The New Millennium by @mgurri --> amazon.com/dp/B00KQMVOPM/…
"Back when the world and I were young, information was scarce, hence valuable... A curious thing happens to sources of information under conditions of scarcity. They become authoritative."
"Public discussion was limited to a very few topics of interest to the articulate elites."
"The docile mass audience, so easily persuaded by advertisers and politicians, had been a monopolist's fantasy which disintegrated at first contact with alternatives."
"Two modes of being, old and new, hierarchical and networked, industrial and egalitarian, top down and bottom up, seem unable to achieve a resolution, a victory of any sort."
"Persons in authority have had to jump through hoops of fire to achieve their lofty posts -- and feel disinclined to pay attention to anyone who has not."
