When we take a look into the ‘Cyber Identity Verification Policy’ in this month’s ‘Controversial Issues’, not many people recognize the gravity of internet bullying until the big banana commits suicide or drops charges against stressful comments. Else, though we are aware of the seriousness of these problems individually, we do not easily take action as it seems unrelated to our daily lives. However, not only the individual but administrative organization, representatively the government, tend to act only after the problem rises as a hot potato among the great mass of people.
The same problem appears in our ‘Campus Special’ and ‘Social & Political Desk’. ‘Campus Special’ deals with issues regarding school facilities which has been brought up for years. From the student’s perspective, the school administration seems to check up on these problems only after they propose incommodities of facilities as a collective mass. The ‘#Metoo Campaign’ that is dealt with in the ‘Social & Political Desk’ also made headlines only after several influential people started coming out with their stories, even though sexual harassment has been prevalent in societies for a long time.
Why do all these controversies break surface only after the crowds raise issues in a group? Does the problem lie within the way in which administrative organizations respond to these issues, big or small, or is society itself to blame for them? Take a moment to ponder over this underlying question as you read through this month’s issue of CAH.
