Author and journalist Malcolm Gladwell wrote “The first person who throws the rock is a lot more radical than the hundredth person. By the time the riot has attracted a hundred people you don’t have to be nearly as much a daredevil or a hothead or committed to any of those things to want to engage in a riot.”
It seems that as a society throwing that rock has become more and more common and thus easier and easier. We see it on social media chat pages in the media and even amongst lifelong friends. The anger is rising the passion is intensifying the rock throwing has become harder and more dangerous.
