Article analysis:

The article "The internet and possibilities for counter accounts: some reflections" by Prem Sikka provides a thoughtful analysis of the potential of the internet to facilitate change through counter accounts and critiques. However, there are some limitations to the author's arguments.

Firstly, the paper locates the internet within the politics of neoliberalism without providing sufficient evidence or explanation. This may lead to a biased view that overlooks other political and economic contexts that shape the use and influence of the internet.

Secondly, while acknowledging that the internet is not a panacea, the author presents it as a communicative device with great potential for change. However, this overlooks the fact that online communication can also reinforce existing power structures and inequalities.

Thirdly, while encouraging engagement with technology and development of counter accounts, the paper does not explore potential risks or negative consequences associated with online activism. For example, online harassment or surveillance can have serious implications for individuals who engage in dissenting activities.

Finally, while emphasizing the importance of connecting counter accounts with common sense, the paper does not address how common sense itself is shaped by dominant discourses and ideologies. This raises questions about how effective counter accounts can be in challenging deeply ingrained beliefs and values.

Overall, while offering valuable insights into the potential of online activism, this paper could benefit from a more nuanced analysis that takes into account broader social and political contexts as well as potential risks associated with online dissent.
