Shamed be he who thinks evil of it

My work deals with social problems. Those who condemn and strive to censor it are usually those who are a part of the problem. They are verbal and mental abusers, omnipresent on social media, where they point a finger at those who deal with the problem. 

They are easy to spot, floating on the surface of this wretched world.
