Daniel, with respect, you might have missed the much larger point I was making. It’s overuse of ALL of US, EVERYONE, WE ALL. No. That insults the reader. It has nothing to do with the aforementioned documentary and everything to do with clickbait headlines that bully.

Sweeping EVERYBODY into a single category. ALL OF US are doing X, YOU HAVE TO, WE ALL SHOULD is patently bullshit. It’s bullying language.

The documentary is a side show. Mark’s a damned good writer. I love his stuff, usually, I link to it and reference it.

Stooping to bullying headlines is to my mind beneath him. Kindly, I appreciate your point but you missed mind. Thanks for your comment.
