What standards do we set in our institutions and systems?
What is commonplace for us in terms of expectations as to how we behave?
For instance, unless there’s a legitimate reason to do so, you cannot shout ‘fire’ for the hell of it when you are on a plane.
This is a problem that social media has to grapple with. There’s free speech sure, but there’s also the responsibility of knowing what is and can be acceptable.
In some institutions, standards have slipped drastically, so much to the point that lying is normalised.
This not only undermines the trustworthiness that bounds our cultures together, it causes long term damage.
Honesty and integrity, two values that should be encouraged by everyone for everyone as we move forwards.
