Faux Outrage

We live in a world of outrage. Any occurrence, no matter how small or insignificant, can be blown up into the hot topic of the day. Throw social media and blogs into the mix and anyone can have an opinion about anything at anytime.

Sometimes the outrage is genuine. Sometimes it’s just a way to vent. Venting can make us feel better. We can tell ourselves we actually care. But if that’s where we stop, if we never do anything about what we claim bothers us, then it’s really just faux outrage.
