Should we say “no” to facebook?

Dec. 15 at 1:25pm

Good post with some great links by Michael Knox Beran today at the Corner.

Electronic community has its virtues, but the morbid craving for it evident in the success of Facebook reveals the degree to which actual community has collapsed in much of the West. A multitude of causes have brought the civilization closer to Tocqueville’s prophecy of the last democratic man, shut up in “the solitude of his own heart,” but among these the war a number of our elites have waged against traditional town-square culture is surely not the least.

Personalism is in the air.
