As a retired about anger here and that the venting venom on social media and manages tweeted I would love for you to follow me at. He Tucker -- WL. And it -- have you ever venom venom on social media gotten means that a legitimate criticism. Hash tag that's the dumbest sweet I've ever seen it yet. So there you go you see that's the kind of thing that people put on this social media and doctor Dave. Reese joins us right now psychiatrist. In private practice in San Diego. And currently consulting the Brattleboro retreat in -- morning back. -- and tell me about anger and why people are are are more angry today than ever if. They are. People more angry but they have more outlets about it. I'm more outlets that can basically make the payment so go to Ottawa couple minutes which treated to a whole different level. Is that famous or infamous people really want this to happen neat colors and anonymous it would result is more. Are a lot of people who look at the same answer from you know on the and you know -- markets and sent it gets misinterpreted and thank you so over the -- -- the targets -- intentional. People wanna be out there and get known and little. Think about consequences of -- about the consequences. Is that a function of the media you think where the times and that it would seem like before all all of the social media that and instantaneous communication people might think twice about what they setter the consequences. And I guess maybe -- a motivation. I think because there's no price competition anymore and it and you put on social media has the possibility of making it and missed. So now people are angry no longer just send an angry left her tactics I'll call could put it out there who knows something about the period. 100000. People -- see it. Instantaneously. So it just makes the easier it is the anger out just in every direction. In terms of spilling out. I know I don't know if any studies have been done on this or not but. Or do people know how to control themselves anymore a collar. Earlier said the problem is everybody's catered to as a child and now they think. If it doesn't go their way they they have no. -- notes his skills to cope with that where automatically goes from zero. 200 miles an hour on the angry speedometer nets on his serve lashing out. Right I mean that that's been in over the past couple decades earlier in the staking self esteem. Wouldn't not the system where people think that good self -- just always thinking world itself. Instead of realizing when your -- realizing when -- wrong. Realizing when you should shut up. So -- if you get kids in and you trying to. Teach him how to -- -- and they get angrier they get their feelings heard. Is the old ways still the best players -- and approach it to use it that you tamper with the new electronic media and instant communication it's available. While I -- really maybe I'm new world right now told new Balkans -- opposite the old ways would work because so out of touch with the way it is. You know -- for -- and tweet something about Q how many hundreds of people come. No it reached lead within minutes it is real different from the even maybe fifteen years ago where for -- might say something that you. Sort of privacy that the group -- and really wouldn't go anywhere could get results. You know want itself that someone -- screen shot and -- result seriously. So we really have to teach kids not only control themselves. But even one letting out and they think -- should try to be aware that there's no such thing and it all. Where people being each other up on the roadway as much as. They are today did always happen in -- going to electronic media does -- just get publicized a lot more. I think they're good statistics on it you know they've mod that depression is. To some extent it's more because people fixable publicity you know they can do it but local people the people that's probably not a lot more common. But you know what used to be hop on page twenty of the local newspaper. Now we're -- everyone's sort of thing so the real different ball game. Blasting those are two words for today everything that used to be on page twenty of the newspaper. Is now on everybody's Twitter feed and what really isn't noteworthy. But comes I guess because you can share it with so many people so quickly. Like Russia and it can be misinterpreted even sometimes if it's benign and a pretty awful consequences doctor anything you financially you know. Are just you know hockey and social media be careful don't say anything about itself for anyone else you don't want the whole world -- -- Always better to type it in and you know count to ten -- before you hit send or post. I'd say what you there yes. They did -- take your shoes off and -- thousands and funds and other things that count I appreciate your time. -- --
