Overheard at Breakfast today

I had breakfast this morning with two young Republicans who have impressed me through their activism. Here’s what one of them said, and the other affirmed, that paid for their meal.

When I want to find out about a candidate, I look at Facebook and Twitter, and don’t even bother to check out their website.

Boom. An important concept I learned from Professor Harold Berman is the nature of revolutions. He was speaking within the context of the development of new legal structures and legal systems, but I think it applies to technological revolutions as well. A revolution is not an event, it is a circular movement that leads inexorably to the next revolution and in doing so gains momentum.

Make of it what you will.
