Are Your Clicks More Powerful Than Your Votes?
By Art Carden
At the beginning of the year, I tweeted The Clickbait Pledge:
The Clickbait Pledge: I will click on nothing "shocking," that will "blow [my] mind," or relating to celebrity antics.

I therefore found the TED talk below very interesting, and it raises a question: are clicks ultimately more powerful (and more influential) than votes? What do you think? How might we apply (say) Jason Brennan’s The Ethics of Voting to responsible media consumption?
What do you think?
