Lynching From Stone To Keyboard



The passage delves into the primal nature of humanity, likening it to wolves in a pack where the weak are consumed. It questions whether despite our perceived progress, the innate brutality described by the Latin phrase “homo homini lupus” (man is a wolf to man) still persists. The author ponders why, even in advanced societies, herd mentality can lead to ruthless and destructive behavior, seemingly immune to the influences of morality, culture, or governance. They also contemplate whether the virtual world has any impact on mitigating these instincts. The book seeks to comprehend the desire for mass destruction or collective hysteria, noting its enduring savagery across different forms. Through an examination of the historical trajectory of lynching, its motives, actors, and patterns, the author argues that while the manifestation of lynching may have changed in the postmodern era, its essence remains consistent with ancient times. Ultimately, the book aims to shed light on efforts to prevent lynching as a form of collective hysteria and provide support in combating it.
