Public persona vs Private persona
Community spirit can sometimes feel like a community prison while everybody is being watched by everybody else. Martin said it's like living in a insular little village wherever you go you are being spied upon by your neighbours peeping out of windows behind their curtains.
As a Buddhist converted to Christianity, Suk had an extraordinary dream in which she was reincarnated as a "Hebrew" woman but not a Jew. She related this dream to a friend in a private email. But soon after her email was sent to one person, she immediately received hundreds of HATE mails accusing her of anti-Semitism. She found it incomprehensible as she was only telling a innocent dream to her friend. How does this email spread to so many strangers?
