online hatred, driving violence – echo chambers, stadium hordes

the negative energy that is poured into driving violence emerges in large part from the sense of protection and power we have, encapsulated in our automotive exoskeleton

a similar sense of protection and power we experience at home, unseen, behind the keyboard, and we pour out our negative tension in online hatred

then there’s some complement of a “horde” effect like the one people feel at the stadium where they are surrounded by people that agree with them; an echo chamber in social network terms.
