    While this story is about the alt-right I would think this bit in particular should be considered carefully by internet goers of all political stripes, including those in this community.

    But my research finds that the subcultural aspects of the internet — the communities we go to for support, or to talk to people going through similar things, can make us feel less lonely in the short term but often end up entrenching us further into certain fatalistic and misanthropic ways of thinking. This, in turn, leads less to a focus on political action and more to a preoccupation with punishing transgressors — which is when it becomes dangerous.
