Careful Little Eyes What You See, Or Show Your Friends


Oh, social media makes this one especially difficult. Sharing and over sharing and completely inappropriate sharing are all too common. In today's language, this rule might say, "Do not attempt to frighten, shock, or amaze your friends with inappropriate images or sayings."

Civil society relies on open, honest discussions. We cannot be so foul and disagreeable that we cannot even have conversations. Social media opens up more opportunities for people to pontificate without any resistance to their ideals or opinions. This is not conversation.
