“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
Another significant issue that a friend reading over my shoulder brought up: consider the implications on the young man she dated. My friend is trying to hire a bunch of employees right now for summer work and one thing he does is check Facebook. Like many employers.
Now consider that this kid's name is attached to hers and now she is in the news. National news, and with the Internet that really just means global. He is now a convicted rapist without a trial. Good job CNN.
You know as I have gotten older...and the Internet/social media has too...I am starting to realize how bad it actually is.
The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.
