The Power of Social Contagions

To follow-up on Slater’s take on the Simone Biles story from yesterday, we take a look at the truth about social contagions. There are three social contagions: Mass shootings, gender dysphoria, and suicide. Do you notice that newspapers don’t usually mention when people pass away from suicide? It’s because social contagions, like something so horrible as suicide, are glamorized and incentivized, whether it be unintentional or not. Social contagions are not talked about, but Slater has the “True Story” behind it, and why we need to be more careful in today’s world.
