Josh Hawley Is Earning National Attention for All the Wrong Reasons

Senator Josh Hawley is making quite a name for himself.

Missouri's junior senator has gotten national attention for crusading against social media giants. Hawley has called them out for selling a "digital drug."

"The addiction is the point," Hawley warns. "Addiction is what Mark Zuckerberg is selling." He also blames the companies for suicides and loneliness and despair, adding, "They've given us an addiction economy."

And with a narrative reminiscent of those who argued television and rock & roll and video games were "ruining our children," he claims, "Maybe social media's innovations do our country more harm than good. Maybe social media is best understood as a parasite on productive investment, on meaningful relationships, on a healthy society. Maybe we'd be better off if Facebook disappeared."
