SEEING EVIL, HEARING EVIL, SPEAKING GOOD: SOCIAL
Seeing Evil, Hearing Evil, Speaking Good: Social Media as a Tool for Transformative Justice
There are multiple fissures within society such as; a suffering economy, a growing prison
industry, a dwindling budget for education, an impaired criminal justice system, gang
affiliations, drug addicts, domestic violence victims, child abuse, sex slaves, prostitution and the
list continues almost indefinitely. Yet, each individual within society has power. The problem
lies in the fact that most individuals do not realize the power they have even when it comes to
their own moral and ethical decisions. This paper will focus on how using social media in
various campaigns can be an effective tool in addressing issues such as those aforementioned by
addressing the individual since each individual represents their community and their society. By
engaging the individual at a basic level, each person can learn to fight against abuses within
themselves, against those of others and within their community to bring about a movement of
transformation through justice and love.
