Nerd rage.

by waxbanks

When you let poorly socialized nerds design the protocols by which society does its business, you build flamewars and fan myopia and nerd rage directly into society’s firmware.

Putting it another way:

Donald Trump is a product of a horrible time decades ago. But Donald Trump’s current presidential candidacy is dependent for its existence on a media environment in which the prerogatives and myopias of nerds are embedded deep in our societal machinery.
