While our democracy sputters, fueled by distracting, lying or hateful social media, we all share cute or hateful or lying memes on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook.

Society is not just government—it is any organizing principle: twitter, Facebook, Instagram are bending our communication to their profitable purposes. And so #elephantjournal is working to create an algorithm of benefit, truth and journalism…not just corporate profit. Our “ecosystem” is half done.

If you’re not posting and reading about Trump’s cabinet of foxes in our henhouse, or Russia’s hacking of 12 key local elections plus our Presidency—whether liberal or conservative—you’re not paying attention. Our Democracy is entering shit creek without a paddle.

“We have recently learned that President-elect Trump has ethical and business conflicts that seem to violate the Constitution; is skipping his national security briefings while dangerously departing from longstanding bipartisan foreign policy; has criticized union workers and protesters on his Twitter feed; and plans to staff much of his cabinet and high-level leadership with billionaires dedicated to eradicating the very programs they are tasked with overseeing. In the meantime, the most recent reports from the C.I.A. are that Russia interfered with the election.”
