Just as the Enlightenment coffeehouse did in its day, the advent of social media has brought down barriers to participation in public discourse. More people than ever take part in public conversations about the big issues of the moment, and yet it seems we are becoming ever more polarised and stuck. Has this all-inclusive openness come at a cost?    

Acclaimed social psychologist Jonathan Haidt visits the RSA to argue that – paradoxically – the very openness of these platforms have proved fatal for the kind of thinking, debate, provocation, and orthodoxy-challenging that is so necessary for liberal democracy.
