Abstract

Technological developments in the media sector has brought about divisions of public space where expressing opinions take over at the cost of listening. The key note discusses how mechanisms of flaming leads to conflict that undermines democratic deliberation. Against examples from Finnish past (racism, political clashes that lead to the Civil War in 1918) the author argues that hate speech tends to turn into physical aggression.
