    Nice article Bruce. The problem is that the friction of sharing is so much lower than the cost of actually reading and critically analysing the information that is put in front of us — and social media platforms have absolutely zero incentive to raise that bar.

    Imagine how different our discourse would be if people had to go through a couple of extra hoops to share – even something as simple as confirming that you spent a minimum of 60 seconds reading a post before you could pass it on.

    We need better ways to get past the endorphin rush and engage the critical thinking part of our brain online.
