Summary
Reader beware: Kevin D. Williamson --the lively, literary firebrand from National Review who was too hot for The Atlantic to handle -- comes to bury democracy, not to praise it. With electrifying honesty and spirit, Williamson takes a flamethrower to mob politics, the "beast with many heads"; that haunts social media and what currently passes for real life. It&;s destroying our capacity for individualism and dragging us down &;the Road to Smurfdom, the place where the deracinated demos of the Twitter age finds itself feeling small and blue
