And maybe it is, but I think it’s more important to start exploring what matters to you and how you can effectively contribute than it is to sit back and dither about whether you should attend to it at all, cute cat gifs accumulating all the while.

I think it might be prudent at this point to focus on evolving tools to facilitate engagement (with information, with other people who may not share your views but are still activists engaged in the same issues), because irrespective of what that large group of effective, engaged citizens could mean for democracy, I think it will still be important for people to have these means.
