Two days ago Reddit gave me the opportunity of reading a story aout a man that blinded his four year old son. I decided that this was potentially too distressing to read and so passed it by. The following day I saw a link on Twitter and followed it. The story despite the scant information it presented, was the most harrowing I have read in years and left me feeling quite depressed. The internet is a platform for all of life and its most distressing excesses. It can’t give that boy his sight back, nor undo the appalling psychological damage he suffered. But it did have the power to depress me beyond precedent.
