'Recently  my Twitter feed  said that Jews have been protesting this administration’s barbaric “policies”, en masse, across the countr y. Thousands of people, in more than 50 places. Many were arrested. You probably haven’t heard about that. Why not? Because establishment media didn’t think it was worth covering much  if it covered it all. Wait! The entire American media establishment didn’t think Jews being alarmed enough to warn of fascism rising again, that they protest en masse across the entire country is kind of important? That it matters enough to make headlines? Isn’t that kind of ignorance bordering on denial verging on complicity, by the guardians of democracy; exactly what makes a society vulnerable to authoritarian fascist collapses, surges of hate, political destabilization in the first place? Let’s think about all this — it’s meaning, it’s urgency, and it’s twisted irony.'

People can't care about what they don't see or understand. There are many phenomenal causes which get no visibility from the media, which is already saturated with too many stories, too much analysis and speculation, too much spectacle and salacious reporting. People are busy and becoming numb to all of the mounting challenges.

Digital media and social networking should offer us an opportunity for sharing knowledge, insight, ideas, vision. It has for whatever reasons you wish to come up with turned into something between a tsunami and a swamp. Maybe it's a tsunami in a swamp. We will all drown with the alligators.
