The Germans have a great word for what seems to be so prevalent today: Schadenfreude.  The current climate for our culture and national discourse is to cancel anything or anyone who is deemed objectionable to anyone at any time.  There are those who revel in the personal destruction of others and feel a great sense of joy at their comeuppance.  I've hear it said that we are never more like God than when we forgive.  Wouldn't it be better to have a culture that seeks to redeem those that have fallen?  When teaching our children how they should behave, it's definitely worth mentioning that there's something wrong with enjoying others' suffering and to reinforce the concepts of magnanimity and forgiveness.  For at some point, won't we all need it?
