PARAPHRASE If the media assumes civil society requires no privacy, then “democratic checks and balances between different interests are easily undermined” (Frantz & Fuchs,  2015, p. 94).   To get into Canada, stampeders needed “one year’s of work supplies before they could cross  the border” (“Adventures,” 2007, p. 235).  SUMMARY Twitter does not necessarily represent civil society, thus it stands to undermine the checks and balances of democracy (Frantz & Fuchs,  2015, p. 94).   Foster (2014) explores his characters deepening concern about what it is to be good (p. 291). To many stampeder deaths caused Canadian police to require a year of supplies. (“Adventures,” 2007, p. 235).
