    So what you're saying is that although you don't know that they are guilty you ostracize them because there is so much negative attention towards them in the media? Thinking Fast and Slow has a lot of insightful information about how we are influenced by such things.

    Thinking fast and slow? Legal judgement has nothing to do with it. The legal system does not faithfully indicate guilt or innocence, and neither does being in legal standing make you somebody that I want to associate with. And media exposure has nothing to do with it, these are all people that up until now I've given the benefit of the doubt though I've heard stories about them. For a counter example, I'm still a defender of Lewis Carroll, although the media is not on his posthumous side.

    I'm asking myself now, why am I inclined to want to think positively about these people, when I wouldn't do so for people who I associate with on a daily basis with similar patterns in their behavior. This is what I'm saying.

    It's a book, highly recommend.

    Yes I agree with you on legal standing, though I didn't know that was your view.

    Yes I see. The halo effect perhaps… It is interesting though, that entertainers are the modern cultural icons. How many people could name people who are effecting real positive changes in the world?
