It’s Election Day as I write, the great opportunity for Americans, in voting, to express their opinions about the direction of our democracy.

A “60 Minutes” program focused on two things: 1) the angry mood of Americans approaching this midterm election and 2) social media, whose platforms not only showcase anger but greatly magnify it. Facebook and Twitter may have been created with good intent, but profit motives have taken over.
