Good news stories from the age of outrage

    Press/Media: Research

    Description

    It has becoming increasingly common for commentators and politicians to dismissively refer to our society as presently living in an 'age of outrage'. Such commentaries are generally paired with a wistful harkening to an era where, they assure us, things were better, more peaceful, and where one might enjoy an apolitical existence. They are outraged at our outrage; and assure us it is the rise of social media, millennials, and this damn age of outrage which has ruined everything.
