Hiding behind the veil of anonymity allows some people to spew hatred, intolerance, and everything else that fall into this category. Social media giants need to understand the mental health implications that have been created by not adhering to their community standards. Hate for profit is the worst crime that can be afflicted on humanity.

“Cyber bullying is bullying. Hiding behind a pretty screen doesn’t make it any less hateful.” – https://onlinesense.org/bullying-quotes/
“When you choose love over hate, faith over despair and acceptance over intolerance, you are doing your part to change the world.” – Franco Cianflone (Winnipeg)
This is a 21st Century phenomenon that is progressively picking up steam especially in these unprecedented times.
Cyber bullying and harassment today is rampant. No one is immune as it preys on all regardless of age, sex, wealth, fame, and the list goes on and on.
Hiding behind the veil of anonymity allows some people to spew hatred, intolerance, and everything else that fall into this category.
Some of these people are angry but now their anger has transformed into an ugly beast called hatred.
Anonymity to them is incredible power that they have never experienced before in their life.
Moreover, self-image and self-worth is their true quest for self-actualization.
However, many 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.
One or two individuals can cause havoc when they believe that their mission in life is to defame, slander, intimidate, and persecute individuals.
Their agenda is very transparent.
The common denominator is hate!
In most cases, they spew without performing their due diligence regarding the facts as their ongoing dialogue inspires more hatred based on conjecture. Unfortunately, hiding behind their device is detrimental to their mental health.
As a result, anonymity creates an inauthentic self that cannot grow and ultimately deteriorates towards despair and despondency.
Who are these people?
They might be 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. Corporations have paid huge dollars to forensic investigators and litigators in order to bring these people to justice.
The legal system no longer takes this societal issue lightly.
Some victims of the bullying and harassment have opted to publish similar vindictive group or individual pages that exposes the actual name(s) and pictures of the perpetrator(s) and their workplace locations.
What can you do?
What’s the cost?
Ultimately, hate begets hate and the cost is undeniably huge, emotionally, spiritually, and physically for these perpetrators and everyone that is affected. Hate creates imbalance. So kill them with kindness.
Release them to their highest good of HSPP (happiness, success, prosperity and peace of mind).
Love always begets love, respect, tolerance, diversity, inclusion, and equality.
Love creates balance.
This might be a hard pill to swallow for some however doing this releases toxicity from your psychological house.
Begin right now and do not even spend one more microsecond of your precious time, any longer contemplating their toxicity.
Be mentally tough.
Determination, openness, understanding, compassion, and purpose will be your mental toughness armor.
Hopefully, the advent of this current pandemic will cause people everywhere to appreciate that we are all interdependent.
The only enemy that can bring people together as it has at this juncture is this pandemic.
When this pandemic has run its course, hopefully more people on the planet will choose love over hate.
Finally, the greatest weapon in the universe is to extend love and compassion and pray for these people.
“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” - Luke 23:34 NIV
