Perhaps a word about one-dimensional media is needed? A reminder that not everyone is articulate in the written word and that upwards of 90% of communication is actually non-verbal—visual and auditory cues that give context to what words are being used. These non-verbal cues are entirely absent on one-dimensional written media. This reality requires a bit of self-reflection when reacting to what has been written and then read on these comment boards—especially important on emotionally charged subject matter such as anti-vaxxers’ self chosen demise which is so broadly tied into the over-arching social milieu that seems to be full of disinformation and outright lies turning US society (and to a lesser extent global society) into a cesspool of “us” vs “them”.
Just a friendly reminder and not meant to come off as self-righteous or scolding. But, alas, in this one-dimensional media it may very well read that way. Be well all and please try to take care of yourselves and others coming here to vent. This pandemic has ripped off the scabs of social rot brought about by love of, and pursuit of, power and $$ at any cost.
