Comment Frightened people are easily led and make bad deci (Score 2) 645

Watching videos of the 2nd 911 plane crash into the WTC
over and over and over,
slow motion, up close
seems to have reduced people's capacity for critical thinking to this day.

These videos seem to perform the same way.

I refuse to watch them for the same reason I refuse to watch snuff films.

But I know people who watch them with ghoulish fascination.
