´ Naming and Shaming -
August 22, 2016

On Facebook I see all kinds of articles about who we should name and shame: guys who send unsolicited pictures of their private parts, people who make fun of overweight people, homophobes, xenophobes and Big Game hunters to name a few. Shaming continues a cycle that achieves the opposite of what it’s supposed to do: people don’t change their minds, they just become more extreme. We have to be careful that our desire for revenge is not confused with justice.
