“… but refuse to see the irreversible damage they’re causing to the individuals in retrospect.”

Yes, exactly this. There used to be a time when we gave people ample space to simply live, learn and grow. Now if you say or do anything that’s even remotely controversial, there’s a good chance that some online mob is going to come for you. And I almost never see anyone who participates in those mobs stop to ask whether their actions are doing more harm than good, though I suppose that might be because they don’t want to be targeted too, lol.

P.S. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! :)
