      I think that the Internet affords us opportunities to create "Anonymous"-like, loose coalitions of generally shared interests that can push back on large, backwards trends that still grip the adult generations of this country.  Help the younger generations see that being better people doesn't mean you need to shut up when assholes open their foul mouths.  It would take awhile, but it's at least one way we can start, perhaps.
