As Director of the Centre for Social Media Analysis, Jamie Bartlett has observed a slow, dangerous decline in our both our adherence to the ideals of democracy, and our belief in the system's ability to work for everyone in our society. And he points to the internet and new technologies as the cause -- but it's not to late to change course. In his new book, "The People Vs. Tech: How the Internet is Killing Democracy (And How We Can Save It)," Bartlett both diagnoses our ailing democracy and prescribes necessary for a society in danger.
