Does anybody remember the news Friday? Is the reason that it is so quickly forgotten simply a fairytale wedding or a tweet from the President? Or are there other reasons why the thing that made so many self-proclaimed “Activists” so… well, active, has already disappeared below the fold?
Our modern social interactions might be one place to start looking. It’s not as “activist” as shouting for gun control or tweeting for mental health care, but the reality is that our thresholds are being lowered by each succeeding event. it is, in effect, a slow-motion riot, as more and more people act on their social impulses without thinking about why they are doing it or the restraints that would normally be imposed.
