Just a quick thought about the shift in paradigm we are living through as we move from modernity to postmodernity. We are all using social media as a way of thinking our thoughts. It pops into your head and you tweet it. Then the discussion ensues. This is good and healthy. But as a public figure I often put the brakes on before I even tweet it. We live in a world of media storm. The Daily Mail, Express and The Sun are constantly looking for a headline. “Vicar says ‘bum’ shocker”.
Are the trad media just perpetuating the ways of modernity and applying them to postmodern times?
[I may have been reading a lot of books about the transition between modernity and postmodernity. Sue me]
