A candid exploration of the state of outrage in our culture, and how we can channel it back into the fights that matter, from presenter and DJ Ashley 'Dotty' Charles. In this wise and very funny journey into the outrage industry, Ashley 'Dotty' Charles explores how by shouting about everything, we have lost sight of the fights that actually matter - and created a world where our outrage feels with consequence. Here's how we can get it back on track.
A really good book diving deep into the modern culture of social media outrage - endlessly picking on the next topic and tweet-shouting rage about it, achieving nothing except a half-hearted apology, and then moving on to the next thing. The book dives into the cause and effect of this phenomena, catching up with some people who have first hand experience of being the drivers of outrage or the unfortunates who have to live with the fallout. Most of all, it’s a treatise for actually using outrage for good, getting motivated to do something, rather than sticking with the easier route of keyboard warrior.
