Phi Beta Iota: “Digital fingerprints” are acutely personal. What this means is that Facebook, Google, and Twitter can “disappear” a person in cyberspace — reminding us of how despotic regimes “disappear” their own citizens into unmarked graves. The “deplorables” have deeply frightened the Establishment, which relies heavily on bribed politicians, a complicit media, apathetic military and law enforcement elements — and — they thought — an effective digital gulag in which they could easily compare Trump to Hitler while repressing all conversations about Clinton as a pedophile, traitor, and criminal. It almost worked. What they missed is that the deplorables do most of their communicating face to face, not in cyber-space, and that there are now enough deplorable eyeballs on every lie being told by CNN, Fox, the mainstream media, and the social media giants, that a moral and intellectual revolution may just be possible.
