The Year of Outrage 2014
“Slate tracked what everyone was outraged about every day in 2014… From righteous fury to faux indignation, everything we got mad about in 2014—and how outrage has taken over our lives.”
A truly epic piece on the phenomena of outrage on the internet. Looking back, it’s true: I spent much of the year reading about how people were outraged about everything from the inane (selfies) to the serious (violence against women, racism). This and the accompanying essays are a worthwhile reflection on what all that outrage means- and whether it matters.
