Using the comment threads of the ‘Savage Love’ advice column article archives, a short history of politics in North America was constructed. In late 2008, comments were enabled on the online ‘Savage Love’ column. That is where the book Commentariat begins. Comment threads are known for being outspoken, sometimes vile, often funny places. The book is intense, full of big opinions and fighting words, political insights and very human moments illustrating how political engagement is performed today.
