Mainstream violence

First, it was students throwing rocks and chasing off campus anyone they disagreed with. Then, it was Democrats and Republicans vilifying each other, leading to January 6. Now, it is comedians being attacked on stage.

It used to be that people would simply not attend the lecture or the show they disagreed with, or just change the channel. Now, they are willing to commit assaults in front of live audiences.

As these events make the news, they risk becoming normalized. Once normalized, they enter the workplace.

Now might be a good time for corporate leaders to remind employees that violence in the workplace is not acceptable.
