The new puritans →

An excellent article from my point of view. It’s a bit long, so you might want to skip certain parts, but it hits home the part that is really important: these days no one is safe from judgement, independent of whether they actually did the deed and whether it even was a deed at all (at least in the criminal/legal sense).

On top of that the consequences are as far-reaching as they ever have been, you can lose your job for something that has nothing to do with your work and much more. Standing up for people that have been falsely accused and wrongly punished essentially leads to you being accused of being guilty by assocation.

It’s a scary time we live in, indeed.
