Re: the definition of "shame" & how "shame" is used

Currently in the USA at this end of 2015 the tactic of "shame" is a political juggerhead that is impacting the  election process—for example, the powerful journalist class who are not commentators continue report in ways that reflect their point of view, however when you are living in a democratic society, you make a deliberate choice that mandates acceptance of the assimilation of all creeds and ethnicities as the best way to remain free to think the "contrary" thoughts, but without being labeled by the definition of "shame" for thinking "contrary" thoughts.
According to the Merrium Webster Dictionary there are three main definitions:
1. conscious emotion of guilt that causes pain, re: a tactic that is used to create susceptibility to that pain
2. a humiliating condition
3. something to be regretted that deservedly brings censure or reproach.
"shame" used as a transitive verb compels acting in a specific way
Democratic societies that use the specific tactic of forcing (someone) to act in ways that remove "shame" by adhering to and practicing only the views that the powerful espouse are undemocratic, and that's no better than living in lands where the powerful class or so-called state use bombs and/or guns to enforce the correct opinion which effectively censures the freedom to think.
At the conclusion of 2015 and at the beginning of 2016, a new year, it's important to know what this word "shame" actually means.
The tactic of shaming is a powerful one whenever that particular tactic is used to label an opinion contrary to the established power, and all the more so during the year 2016, democratic societies will use this tried and true "public shaming" method as a tactic to enforce what is called "democratic" opinion in countries that live under democratic laws, but "shaming" impacts every citizen to compel & impel to adhere to the approved opinion just to be accepted and so remain unlabeled.
