    of more pervasive media.
    Better in the sense of more effective, not factually or morally better.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      most people's contact with CT was some guy on the street corner ranting. You didn't really listen to what he was saying because you could see and hear that he was obviously unhinged-- you averted your eyes and walked quickly away. But social media doesn't allow you to see the batshit crazy in the CT-flinger's eyes, and without the voice inflection, some of the shit reads almost reasonable. So it gets distilled and spreads much more quickly.

      I'm actually kind of glad that the assholes are taking to You tube to do their rants-- look at the response people had to the guy who was "gonna start killing people" if they come to take his guns. They saw his eyes, they heard his voice-- the madness was on display.
