On the Subject of Angry Internets

I feel as though there must be such a thing as "legitimate outrage." Insofar as many traditions in our civilization perpetuate inequality, a "culture of outrage" might not be so bad a thing if it can lead people to take the step from discourse to action.

As Prof. Neil deGrasse Tyson's tweets have never victimized anyone, I fail to see how they might meet the criteria for "legitimate outrage."
