Should we attempt to humanize our opposition?
The internet, comment sections in particular, illustrates the social tendency to dehumanize those that we dislike or especially those that we think of as immoral. Words like: subhuman, animal, idiots, pure evil, deranged, monster… etc, are easy to find on any controversial news story.
Is this constructive?
How can we fight our own tendency to brush off those who are different from us less than average?
Is it important that we do so? Personally, I think it may be one of humanity’s most important responsibilities in using social media.
