Videos are Shadows

Nobody asked but …

Videos are mostly shadows on the wall of Plato’s Cave. Yet humans persist in treating them as first hand perceptions in the full sunlight. I have just left a Web discussion in which a male decided it was OK to hit women based on a man-woman encounter in an Internet video. That reminds me of the time that Doctor Senator Bill Frist declared Terri Schiavo OK from a news video. Not OK. Here’s a rule of thumb, do not use videos to make lifeboat scenaria.
