Opinions

So, what do you think?

There’s a cultural, post-your-status pressure to come up with an on-the-spot nugget of insight or wisdom on whatever is happening now.

What is an individual, in today’s world, if not a being that possesses and occupies a position on any given issue?

To be talking heads on television. We clamour for the attention of the camera (metaphorical or otherwise) to capture our ‘analysis and commentary’ on anything. Everything.

Lest we forget that opinions are rarely more valuable than the effort it takes to inform them.

It’s ok to be silent sometimes.

(In my opinion.)
