Shaming: how we learn?

Is shaming (no matter what it pertains to) how we progress as a society at this point in time?

Really think about this question. Does anything ever change until the larger half of the population decides that something is bad, and starts "ripping on" the other half? I'm not saying it's pleasant, because it's not. But I'm not saying it's "bad" because until enough people accept something and fight against the other percentage of people (which at this point in history primarily happens behind a screen) nothing happens. Doesn't matter if it's gay rights, school lunches or a breed of dog.

Really think about this before you answer. I'm sure you agree it's unfortunate that we work this way, but is this statement correct? We learn and progress by certain types of shaming.
