"Michael Malice is Worried About the Response to the Virus" by Joe Rogan

Joe Rogan: "Are you worried about the virus?"

Michael Malice: "No! I'm worried about the response to the virus... this has given some very very bad people some very useful information about how much crap people will put up with... if (Dr. Fauci) told people to start drinking dog pee, people would be on Twitter wondering what the best breed (of dog pee to drink would be)... and would be yelling at you that you're not doing it."

Well said, Mr. Malice.

A great quote found in the comments section of the video: "Social media made you all way too comfortable with disrespecting people and not getting punched in the face for it." — Mike Tyson

As someone who recently worked in Big Tech with a handfull of immature, passive-aggressive nerds, I concur. A lot of the social bullying behavior some people exhibit these days flies in the face of the "anti-bullying" movements spawned from the same generation. Bullying has not dissappeared, it just moved from direct verbal or physical abuse to indirect social media mob mentality and cancel culture which is just as damaging, if not more-so, due to the fact that indirect communication by it's very nature is an attempt to manipulate people without allowing them to address the situation directly.

As anyone who has watched non-professional hockey leagues where fighting is not allowed knows that the cheap shots taken when the referee isn't looking cause far worse injuries than two combatants settling their differences directly with the spotlights on them.
