This opinion piece in the New York Times by Paul Klugman is a sober reminder how barbaric people can be. As someone who has studied and written extensively on workplace bullying and emotional intelligence, most work or have worked in oppressive environments where people are not allowed to express their feelings and have civil discourse where it is ok to disagree, discuss, debate, defend and yes even disobey. The consequence of this is a newfound license to unleash their feelings, using propaganda to justify it. I assert creating psychologically safe, fair and emotionally intelligent workplaces where civil discourse is the norm, the abnormal can be abated.
