Lisa Gallagher: thank you so much for being the first to engage with this article. I greatly appreciate your constructive comments, which make perfect sense. I think all social media users need to step it up regarding civility (ditto that offline), lest civil society slowly descends into a dystopian abyss where authoritarianism is the only available avenue.
I encourage Millennials and Generation Z to read such timeless classic and prescient science fiction novels — if they haven’t already — such as:
- “1984” and “Animal Farm” by George Orwell.
- “Brave New World” by Ayn Rand.
- “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury.
Any others to add to the list?
