• Device Daily quoted Chris Ferguson, PhD, professor of psychology, in an Oct. 10 post on the Momo internet hoax. “You can see narratives in Plato’s dialogues where Athenians are talking about Greek plays — that they’re going to be morally corrupting, that they’re going to cause delinquency in kids,” Ferguson said. “That’s why Socrates was killed, right? Essentially, that his ideas were going to corrupt the youth of Athens. Socrates was the Momo challenge of his day.”

The ads will only be traceable to the last organization who spent the money, so the public can’t see who paid the front group.”
