I couldn't gave put it better how we have become less and less aware of what is evil.

He asks: has anything changed in my life due to all this social media craziness? And he says: no! Of course not! Culture's still the same. Moderate. Fine. It's just a few crazies online that make it seem like things are nuts.

Well, we've got men using girls' bathrooms, playing girls' sports--and of course winning, although of course we're also convinced there's no substantive difference between men and women that isn't socially constructed--and I could go on. The "innocent" hair metal and 90's hip hop that has been normalized was sick and perverted in its time and seems almost innocent only in comparison to the freakshow out there now. No, social media's a huge dadgum problem, for sure. It's just that it's only one of many, so you can write bad articles like that one that try to minimize the evil.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan called this as "defining down deviancy." It's a process of creeping corruption of values.
