Socrates as a blogger

I am presently working on Chapter 5 of my book, which includes a discussion of wikiLeaks. During the research I found this fantastic quote by Spence (2012, p. 38):

For Socrates, like committed investigative journalists today, was passionate about the truth. If he had lived today he would probably have been an investigative journalist or a social media blogger in pursuit of the truth for the common good.

The conceit continues throughout the paper, which I highly recommend as both entertaining and insightful.
