The problem with being human is that humans make mistakes. There are some out there that cannot grasp that people do make mistakes. I have made my share of them and those who have criticized me have made their share of them as well.

What these critics do not seem to understand is that their mistakes are as bad if not worse then those I may or may not have made.

There seems to be this trend when debating the nuances in certain high profile cases to impune, humiliate and disgrace anyone who has differing viewpoints on the various topics arising out of the cases being followed.

Rather than debate the issues on merit, the parties engage on a course of barging into the personal lives of the participants of the debates in an attempt to either punish them for their points of view or intimidate them into not participating in the conversations in progress.

This trend, if not abated, will lead to an audience of robots who will watch, read and listen but will not speak. The internet will turn into nothing more than an extension of passive viewing reading and listening. The art of conversation will fade into a state of apathy.

Stay tuned
