I’m torn on these issues. I really have a problem with the total ruination of someone’s life for doing a stupid that at one time in their life. We are all stupid at times. Even EXTREMELY stupid at times.
But do we need to publicly need to shame people, ruin their livelihoods and basically kick them into the gutter for every misstep they have made in their lives? And just why are we doing this?? To make ourselves feel more moral? More righteous? More intolerant (while being as intolerant as you can)? Is it because some can only feel good if they are pointing out the faults of others?
Honestly I don’t get it.
This is of course Reader’s Digest version of what I could write on this but I don;t feel like typing a novel right now, so you get this shorthand instead.
