For all the talk I hear about the potential downfall of Western society, it’s interesting that the one culprit I never hear worried about is the one I think and have experienced to be the worst and most dangerous.
I am talking about gossip, rumour, intrigue, or whatever else you want to call it.
Gossip may conjure images of cute little old biddies gabbing over their bridge game, but there is nothing cute or harmless about it. Gossip destroys lives. Rumour destroys relationships and reputations. And once it starts there is nothing to stop it.
It is, quite simply, evil.
