The popularity of these things is a form of ancient scapegoating

t vigilantitainment is criminal. Is it as bad the vigilante shooting “the bad people” he reads about in the news? [someone pops up like that now and again]? No, but by *not* coordinating with authorities in their so-called busts is wrong. It’s a shitty way to get Youtube ad revenue.

The popularity of these things is a form of ancient scapegoating, where people can put their own ‘sins’ aside while they place them on something or someone else, which makes the viewer feel victorious, even though they’re not improved at all.
