Jon Ronson has interviewed numerous people who have been publicly shamed – lost jobs, marriages, health…..We aren’t talking about long ago thieves and law breakers but those who inadvertently let a faux pas slip that may not have been politically correct or that someone just plain didn’t like. It can be as simple as a comment or pic on Facebook or think Rachel Dolezal or Brian Williams currently. Public shaming is everywhere and Ronson explores up close some whose lives have been devastated because of one wrong comment. We all have freedom of speech, a voice and it’s easier to use when anonymous. Is it out of control? You decide.
