A Responsible Rant from “maggie the cat”
In response to the following TED Talk
“Monica Lewinsky: The Price of Shame”
Monica Really Does Have Something Extremely Important To Say.
She Was Used By The Media To Feed The Masses Their Thirst For Blood.
A Test Experiment For The New Techno Age.
Instant Information & Gratification.
She Lost Her Privacy, Dignity, Her Honor, & She Was Used.
All This b/c She Dared To Have Invited Sexual Contact With The President.
Sexual Indiscretions Are Not A Hangable Offense.
Our Society Is Too Easily Shocked By Sex & Sexual Identity. WHY?
When Anything Has To Do With Raw Sex & Nakedness In General.
Modesty Is An Over-rated Excuse For Prudery & The US Is Filled With It
How Do You Think Monica Felt Being Exposed & Shamed Hourly & Daily.
Never To Escape The Scrutiny & Spying & Betrayal
The Media Could Do It – Not That They Should Have.
[The Jurassic World? – Just b/c You Can Doesn’t Mean You Should.]
The New Media Gave Monica More Than Her 15 Minutes.
The Media Nearly Destroyed Her.
Who Shares Responsibility For This Shame?
Monica’s Honesty In This Video Deserves An Audience.
To Hear Her Story Is A Revelation & A Healing Experience.
It Is Worth The Time Spent Listening & Understanding.
This is the opinion of this writer. I was impressed with what Monica had to say. I was one of the people who thought the worse of her. It was her carelessness which caused all the insanity & almost destroyed a presidency. I didn’t understand.
This video opened my eyes.

Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame – TED Talk
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.”
Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.
