*** Though in a HilariousInHindsight moment, Fluttershy in canon is shown to be aware of nature being dangerous. Some time after this chapter was when the Pony IDW comics came out and in the first atc, Fluttershy ''cheerfully'' pointed out that the two groups of wild animals that were going to attack them were now fighting one another for the right to eat them. While the rest of the Mane 6 is in shock and digust at watching the fight, Fluttershy cherfully comments on nature being fascinating while staring at the fight.

** One of her articles named "[[http://www.cracked.com/blog/the-completely-selfish-reason-you-should-help-people/ The Completely Selfish Reason You Should Help People]]", Christina pointed out EnlightenedSelfInterest as a [[TakeAThirdOption common ground]] to lines between naivete idealism and nihilistic inactivity. Rather than ranting or volunteering out of ego, sometimes actually supporting bigger picture (namely charity organization and civil activities) to fulfill their own sense of good along with making actual progress.

* The Pewdiepie antisemitism scandal during 2017 shows two anvils on both sides. On one side it's a cautionary tale about how there can be more consequences to your actions than you think, Pewdiepie made an a non-serious antisemitic joke in one of his videos but it soon got out of hand and caused him to lose his [=YouTube=] Red series "Scare Pewdiepie". On the other hand, the story shows how news outlets can turn things into a dangerous game of Chinese whispers by manipulating footage for profit and with a callous disregard for the person's livelihood.

However Logan and his friends were completely inappropriate in the suicide forest by laughing and making jokes[[labelnote:Note]] Making jokes can be a [[SadClown response to trauma]] but his behavior didn't justify his actions[[/labelnote]]. He objectified the corpse by using it the thumbnail, zooming in on various parts of [[BodyHorror the body]], hypocritically making himself [[FakeUltimateHero look and sound like a hero]] and generally avoiding any form of common sense for profit. Many [=YouTubers=] have called him out on this by telling him that suicide isn't a subject that can be treated as a [[DudeNotFunny joke or be treated lightly]].
** Another interpretation of this anvil, [[PrideBeforeAFall pride always comes before a fall]]. Logan is shown to be arrogant at times during his videos. As said above Logan objectified a suicide victim for his career and didn't think of the obvious consequences. When he made an apology on [[https://twitter.com/LoganPaul/status/948026294066864128 Twitter,]] he kept boasting about his success during the apology and arrogantly lied about the purpose of the video. As a result of this egotistical act, he's heavily damaged his own career due to the public outcry. Not only that, he might have also shown the faults in the [=YouTube=] system that allowed him to manipulate it in the first place. The video was placed among the top ten videos [=YouTube's=] trending page meaning that the system encouraged users to watch the video, which only increased the public response.
