What If There Isn't A "Solution" For Every Problem?
The logic, to oversimplify quite a bit, goes something like this: Well, if Wikipedia is possible, this means that the Internet is something new--and if the Internet is something new, it means that there might as well be a "Wikipedia for politics." Internet-centrism normalizes "disruption"--and once disruption is seen as something to cheer for, all sorts of solutionist projects spring up. Boston Review 07/01/13
