So we’re here, Chapter 8, the discussion. Make yourself a cuppa, perhaps fetch a biscuit or two, and settle down, as it’s a bit longer than the other parts. I will assume you didn’t wade through the entire methodology, which is actually the longest chapter.

In the discussion, I set out why the things I found out are interesting, or useful, or just thought-provoking. We take a little tour around moral panic, and the internet and aging, church leaders’ opinions and all sorts of other bits and pieces. The discussion goes back to the literature, and shows how the work I did extends, challenges or agrees with other people’s findings. Lots more questions are posed – but if I were going to use any part of my thesis as a platform for world domination, this would be the one.
