"People who love themselves don't hurt other people. The more we hate ourselves, the more we want others to suffer." - Dan Pearce
Cyber bullying and harassment in society today is rampant. Some social media open platforms are flourishing financially and will do anything to promote more dialogue good, bad or indifferent. Unfortunately and as a result, many people have resorted to the court of Facebook and others as they can easily hide behind the veil of anonymity and spew hatred, intolerance and everything else that falls into this category.
These people are actually decent human beings with families and jobs but somehow got caught up in online mobs that are no different than street mobs anywhere on the planet.
All it takes is one or two individuals that believe that their mission in life is to defame, slander, intimidate and persecute individuals. In most cases, they spew without performing their due diligence regarding the facts as their ongoing dialogue inspires more hatred based on conjecture.
Taking their perceived plight to a civil court is unimaginable, as then the rule of law would apply and they would have to terminate their bullying or harassment.
Who are these people?
They are your neighbors next-door, people across the street, others in your city, in another province or state or across the globe.
Most often as a result of intensive forensic investigation their real identities, location and workplaces are revealed. Some victims of the bullying and harassment have opted to publish similar vindictive group or individual pages that exposes the actual name(s) of the perpetrator(s).
No one wins in the scenario described above.
The only winner is the open platform that continues to gain momentum financially. Finally, the greatest weapon in the universe is to extend love and compassion and pray for these people.
