'A few years ago, Russian whistleblowers like Lyudmila Savchuk began to
reveal that Vladimir Putin had built a massive new internet propaganda
machine. At the heart of this machine sat the "Internet Research
Agency," a Russian government front company tasked with operating
warehouses filled with employees paid 40,000 to 50,000 rubles ($800 to
$1,000) a month to create proxied, viable fake personas -- specifically
tasked with pumping the internet full of toxic disinformation 24 hours a
day.'

Intentionally stoking social divisions is evil.
