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

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

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.

Isolate him from the group and lo and behold, the wave stops and everything goes back to normal." - The Guardian
