In 1998 Monica Lewinsky lost her personal reputation basically over night on a global level. Today the type of public humiliation that she suffered is almost a new normal.
Meanwhile she’d studied Social Psychology at the London School of Economics. In a brave TED Talk she speaks about our “culture of humiliation”, where online shaming eventually comes down to “Dollars”. She advocates in a very convincing way for society to take a different route.
