Sneezing Angry Thought Germs

This video about how ideas – particularly angry ones – spread across the Internet comes your way via fellow MennoNerd Robert Martin:

Obviously there’s a lot there we could learn from within Christian spheres of the Internet, too. Are we actually increasing the reach of that other angry faction when we spend a lot of time being our own angry faction at them? How accurate is the information we receive about that other faction after it has been reinforced over and over again only within people who think like us and hate them? How do we go about honestly expressing our thoughts online without resorting to angry thought germ sneezing at the expense of others?
