In Japan, Small Children Take the Subway and Run Errands Alone - CityLab
In Japan, small children take the subway and run errands alone, no parent in sight. The reason why has more to do with social trust than self-reliance.

Teens Cyberbully Themselves As A New Type Of Self-Harm : Shots - Health News : NPR
During the stressful teen years, most adolescents experience emotional highs and lows, but for more than 20 percent of teenagers, their worries and sad feelings turn into something more serious, like anxiety or depression. Studies show that 13 percent to 18 percent of distressed teens physically injure themselves via cutting, burning or other forms of self-harm as a way to cope with their pain.

Recent research and clinical psychologists now suggest that some adolescents are engaging in a newer form of self-aggression — digital self-harm. They're anonymously posting mean and derogatory comments about themselves on social media.

Small change - why the revolution will not be tweeted (Malcolm Gladwell)
Describes the work of strong, social connections behind activist revolutions such as that of the civil rights movement of the 1960s. The point is that social connections explain participation and sacrifice associated with such movements, while the internet and social media can only be conducive to participation by lessening the motivation needed to participate. The conclusion is that heavy-duty activism that drives real social change cannot and will not be carried out online.

Interesting to think about violence as a feature of these social change movements. Also interesting to think about other mechanisms in the online world (e.g.: affinity spaces) that may instead do the work of social ties in the physical world.

What counts as sacrifice?
