The culture of escalation

Are we supposed to be surprised at what someone does when they have a camera pointed at them or what someone says when a mike is shoved in their face?

Every thumbs says I care about this.

The culture of one upping each other is really a race to the bottom. At some point, you hit the floor. In this hole, you can’t be loud enough to be heard, nor big enough to be seen.

You might have gained our attention for a moment but you definitely didn’t earn any trust with a stunt like this. What a wasted opportunity.

How do you want to be remembered?

What kind person do you want to be seen as?

What is something that people have learned from you?

Will you be proud of how they shared your movement with someone else?
