de Jia Tolentino par Henry McKenzie

publié le 18/11/2019

By reading this koob, you will learn how modern life, particularly online life, has changed the ways in which individuals think of themselves and the world.

You will also learn that:

  • Internet life has grown from innocent to conflict-ridden

  • Capitalism has permeated online life

  • Mass media determines the appearance of politics

  • Scams are integral to the millennial experience

  • Sexual assault is the norm, not the exception on American campuses

The contemporary digital era has been a time of intense change and development for internet users. Original internet life revolved around bespoke personal blogs and web pages, where online community felt like a genuine experience as opposed to the mission statement of social media giants. From these humbler origins, public online life has metastasized into a vibrant, conflict-ridden, and ferociously individualistic place. Jia Tolentino traces the evolution of internet life through the example of her own, illustrating how varying forms of self-delusion, or trick mirrors, have been prompted by the conditions of modern life.
