Gossip

Gossip, blather, slander, misinformation or rumours are a cross-cultural phenomenon ofhumanity. The power and punch sound of the word uttered in the form of slanderis often more powerful than the gun. It spreads at great speed, it cannot beresisted, it can easily injure, discredit, turn a life around without anyphysical contact. Slander is faster than light and often upon us before itarises. We feed it and we deform, we need it and condemn.
