❰Ebook❯ ➤ Is Shame Necessary? Author Jennifer Jacquet – Thomashillier.co.uk An urgent illuminating exploration of the social nature of shame and of how it might be used to promote large scale political change and social reform In cultures that champion the individual guilt An urgent illuminating exploration of the social nature of shame and of how it might be used to promote large scale political change and social reform Is Shame PDF/EPUB or In cultures that champion the individual guilt is advertised as the cornerstone of conscience But while guilt holds individuals to personal standards it is powerless in the face of corrupt institutions In recent years we as consumers have sought to assuage our guilt about flawed social and environmental practices and policies by for example buying organic foods or fair trade products Unless nearly everyone participates however the impact of individual consumer consciousness is ineffective Is Shame Necessary presents us with a trenchant case for public shaming as a nonviolent form of resistance that can challenge corporations and even governments to change policies and behaviors that are detrimental to the environment Jennifer Jacuet argues that public shaming when it has been retrofitted for the age of social media and aimed in the proper direction can help compensate for the limitations of guilt in a globalized world Jacuet leaves us with a new understanding of how public shame when applied in the right way and at the right time has the capacity to keep us from failing other species in life’s fabric and ultimately from failing ourselves.
