The Expansion of Intellectual Dark Web

It’s accelerating:

Some random blue check lighting up Twitter with some positively lit wrongthink?

That’s what I thought. I didn’t even know the guy was a pianist and a comedian. Heck, I didn’t even realize someone in my network had previously turned me on to one of the guy’s vlogs!

What really strikes me though is that the guy turns out to be very much up to speed on both Jordan Peterson and Stefan Molyneux. It’s as if I take for granted that these guys are some kind of big secret or something. But that’s not the case at all.

The informal network of people driving the shadow commentariat is expanding concurrently with a noticeable drop in the mass media’s ability to contain it. Something extremely disruptive is going on.
