Is public shaming really such a great idea after all?

Jim Goad says no:

“I’m not a social crusader,” claims the man-child behind the Public Shaming project. “But there is social activism in [what I do].” Such social activism includes calling others “racist fucking shitheads,” “repugnant little slimeballs,” “xenophobic idiots,” and in one case, “a vile monster void [sic] of emotion and compassion.”

Yeah, he sounds highly compassionate. It’s not like he’s a clone in an endless assembly line of “humanists” who seem to spend most of their time dehumanizing others.
