Monica Lewinsky. About 17 years ago, she was perhaps the most familiar figure in the world public opinion. At the age of 22, Monica’s, an intern at the White House, relationship with the US president began to be talked about all over the world. This young girl’s greatest misfortune was not only the relationship with the US President, but also its publicization when the digital revolution that swept the whole world at a time and the internet had entered into our life.
For the first time in many years, Monica has come out of the public in a TED meeting, explaining how the ‘Shame and Humiliation Culture’ has created an economy and threatened our lives. She tells with 17 years of reality shows and discussions, how this threat has grown exponentially, through examples.
She says the most important antidote of it is approaching with empathy and compassion to the issues as individuals. If we watch every video that is broadcasted on the Internet with empathy, we can show our individual response to the problem through feeling our responsibility before every single click to watch the broadcasts.
This impressive talk by Monica Lewinsky should not be missed during this period when our individual lives are completely abandoned, and ethical values are discussed.
