Preserving the Digital Sphere
Chapter 8 comes full circle, returning to the other side of the digital democratic sphere where media literacy educators and non-profit organizations have built their own communities for the purposes of combatting online hate and promoting a communication of inclusion. Klein highlights the ways that educators and watchdog agencies are working to monitor and expose radical movements, both on the web and in society. Their initiatives speak to the power of citizen groups that use this same digital space to employ anti-hate campaigns and promote a new vigilance and educational awareness as the weapons against bigotry. Klein highlights the essential role that the younger Net Generation must play in learning to navigate this complex environment, through identifying and ultimately dismissing digital hate going forward.
