"Someone is Wrong on the Internet"

"Why has Internet discourse devolved into a 'war of every man against every man'?" asks Alan Jacobs — The Online State of Nature. The author's premise: "I have thought a lot about why people get so hostile online, and I have come to believe it is primarily because we live in a society with a hypertrophied sense of justice and an atrophied sense of humility and charity, to put the matter in terms of the classic virtues."
