Civil action online

Strong opinions that never get heard.

Battle cries that echo in the silence.

What is a revolution defined by a hashtag?

What is anger boiled down to a hundred and forty characters?

The people march to the beat of a million likes.

The waves of change crash against the cliffs of the cloud.

The future of the riot, the strike, the protest march

lies in a generation plagued by ADHD.

The fight trapped between the clicks of a mouse.

Injustice is entertainment

the gasps and screams feed a bored proletariat.

An uproar is a strongly worded comment.

A people that cannot look up from their screens long enough to do something.

Is this the death of civil action?
