Perspectives » The Cure for Collective Self-Harm? | Moral Development |

A short synopsis of an even more fascinating entry from The Guardian.  Do your brain a favor and read both.


"'The City', suggests that the industry's true madness is that it's run by some  pathological individuals. Aside from them, everyone else is just a disillusioned  follower." - Business Insider


"In youth psychology there's a well-known phenomenon regarding collective self-harming. You have a shelter that's housing, say, 50 boys. All of a sudden and apparently out of nowhere, they all start mutilating themselves. A wave. It's only natural for outsiders to assume that something must be very wrong with that shelter. However, research and experience demonstrate that all you need to do is find the one person who started it. Isolate him from the group and lo and behold, the wave stops and everything goes back to normal." - The Guardian
