Mob rules


Here is a nice contribution from Joe Hildebrand on the social media lynch mob, right now hard at work tearing down what remains of the Enlightenment in Australia, and around the Western world.

Joe rightly references the Colosseum – perhaps inspired by a recent XYZ column: Internet-Lynch-Mob2Maximus Goodius Dividesus, and the Roman mob?

Hildebrand puts it, “little wonder that ISIL’s favourite means of communication is Twitter,” it’s the weapon of choice for today’s character assassins.

As Joe beautifully sums it up, in the world of the left wing lynch mob that is the Twitter sewer, “stupid begets stupid.” Indeed.
