Do we gain pleasure from the pain and humiliation from sadists?
Of course not.
Why then do we engage in social media discussions with those whose pleasure is derived from hurting others?
Why not just block them and move on with our lives?
We will never convince them the morality of equal pay, of racial equality/justice, or the world benefits of the Olympics or the joy of extending a helping hand to others.
“Let us not seek…justice…by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.” Martin Luther King Jr. 1963
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
