Edmund Burke on Social Media

Edmund Burke, the Anglo-Irish philosopher and statesman, had this to say about social media, back in 1790. Wise words for those of us who grow weary about social media:

Because half a dozen grasshoppers under a fern make the field ring with their importunate chink, whilst thousands of great cattle chew the cud & are silent, do not imagine that those who make the noise are the only inhabitants of the field.

HT: UK Pastor Andrew Wilson
