Social control is a useful tool to regulate the social relations. The so-called “soft” tools may take a form of derision or humiliation in front of many eyes. Although the Ancient Greece had such a way to control the mass, now it takes more severe character. The Greek could cancel person from the public by sending them to another city or country but in the contemporary society we live in two worlds simultaneously: world of those Greek people and social media. Double cancel may lead to devastated consequences.
