Culture of cruelty
We cannot condone the fact that a joke or prank can cause someone else harm; after all, some people are more sensitive than the others. Most of the time, we understand the repercussions of our seemingly innocent actions too late. By then, the damage is done. This is happening more in today’s world because people have become “desensitized”. The depth of feeling is lost. Are we taking too many liberties with people’s feelings in the name of entertainment?
