  • Death by a thousand cuts

    Death by a thousand cuts (psychology), the way a major negative change which happens slowly in many unnoticed increments is not perceived as objectionable.

    As I read my emails, Twitter, Facebook, major Newsfeeds and to a lesser extent Instagram I am reminded of Death by a thousand cuts. This is not a political, religious or racial diatribe. Rather it reflects my view of the world today. People are becoming inhumane. Perhaps it is the “rats in a closed cage with unbounded reproduction” philosophy experiment of the 50’s” or even perhaps before.

    Whatever the reason, we are in a state of negativity and so I search for a reason of our decline as humans of sensitivity for our compatriots, citizens and fellow Homo Sapiens. Perhaps we are unable to process the multi-media beyond limited a small and secure tribe of fellows.
