The Belittlement Syndrome

I agree. Is this a bad thing?

It's a terrible thing.

In the Internet era, the world's gotten bigger, more accessible, more interact-able (for lack of a better term).

However this has gone hand in hand with people living in small bubbles instead of living in the wider community. By propagating this culture, we end up being the people who take pictures of beached dolphins instead of helping them back in the ocean, for example.

An uncaring society becomes a fragmented one. The person needing someone to talk to, gets ignored and next day you hear that they've robbed a house (maybe your own!), or committed suicide, or even worse.

We lose our humanity by turning blind eyes to the doings of our fellow human.
