Hold on. Does social media use really affect kids?
"Dr. Andrew Przybylski accessed the same dataset used by Dr. Twenge and said: "Based on that same data set, eating potatoes has the exact same negative effect on depression. The negative impact of listening to music is 13 times larger than the effect of social media." But we don't seem to be seeing those same headlines about the harmful effects of potatoes on today's youth."

Hold on. Does social media use really affect kids?
"Time spent on social media is actually a poor predictor of mental health. In one recent study of more than 400 young adults, my colleagues Chloe Berryman, Charles Negy and I found that neither time spent on social media nor the importance placed on it predicted mental health or suicide.

At the same time, some behaviors, such as "vaguebooking" (seeking attention through vaguely alarming posts) did serve as a red flag for suicidal thoughts."

‘We had Marx, they had Pauline’: left organising in poor communities | Overland literary journal
Here it is, then: the challenge of all those opinion pieces. How do you win over the person who never had Marx, but does have Pauline? A shop owner in Woodridge called Feargal up after seeing an APN flyer about the cashless welfare card. She asked him to bring a petition to her shop, so she could collect signatures. ‘I don’t want this cashless card,’ she told him, ‘because it’ll mean that all the Aboriginals are going to steal from my shop!’

It’s the kind of racist statement that awakens, for many of us, the instinct to scold. But while ‘calling out’ someone’s racism feels good (or at least righteous) in the moment, it’s highly unlikely to change their mind. ‘You need to create something people want to buy into,’ says Feargal, ‘and people don’t want to buy into being made to feel like dirt. They’re already made to feel like dirt because they’re poor.’ Instead, the APN emphasises common interests: ‘You focus on the fact that it’s about welfare, and in the end, we’re all connected. What hurts one, hurts all.’ Starting from this position of commonality, they find, is a far more effective avenue for challenging people’s views on race. When people complain to APN organisers about ‘the Muslims’, their tactic is to articulate a common enemy: ‘Are the Muslims cutting your Centrelink payments? Malcolm Turnbull and Tony Abbott and all that lot – are they Muslims? No, and that’s who’s cutting your payments off!’

This is a strategy open to heavy criticism from a Left preoccupied with prejudice and privilege. The Woodridge shop owner, for instance, was not made to confront her own racism. She didn’t consider the colonisation and dispossession that Aboriginal people have undergone for centuries, and still undergo today. But she was, crucially I think, prompted to recognise an instance in which her interests were aligned with theirs. In doing so, she took the first step toward what we might call solidarity with Aboriginal people, with migrants and asylum seekers, with all those dismissed as burdens on society. Everything else grows from there.
