Adam Boulton has done a little piece on SkyNews about the increasing violence and threats that face politicians, people in the public eye and has also, thankfully, mentioned the fact that trolling has destroyed social media. Thank you, Adam. One could add online bullying, apart from real time bullying, targeted hatred, terrorism without a rational cause and adult delinquency to the list. One could blame all this on the collapse of traditional standards, values and a general misunderstanding of the concept of liberty.
This is a very important issue. I expect a stony silence to accompany this post as few give a damn and many would have their egos and their internet existence curtailed if they were to behave themselves, but it is chasing people away from one another and away from solving problems by confronting them because that raises a red flag to every deranged headcase and bored couch potato on earth to come and do battle with people unknown and unconnected. The problem has been severe for a long time and now that politicians are being affected by it, I hope something may be done about it that bears in mind the liberty of individuals, not to do whatever they like but to be free to exist without violent and abusive nobodies harassing and hurting and now often killing them whenever they see an opportunity.
Again, thanks Adam Boulton. It's important to draw attention to asocial diseases and this is a very serious one and it's spreading and no one is really doing anything about it. The media and the entertainment industry are actually encouraging it. There are many dead people and frightened people and bullied people to prove it. Its not funny, it's not clever and it will result in a catastrophic failure of control and security for the average individual if something isn't done to bring society back to its senses. Soon.
