Are there just too many opinions out there?
… I don’t mean on Fluther – that’s what we’re here for, to share opinions, advice, etc. – I mean in the world as a whole.
NPR commentator Andrei Codrescu recently said this: “Everyone with a Wi-Fi is an opinion maker these days … used to be there were two, three, maybe four different opinions for a single item of news; now there are millions, maybe billions of opinions on every puny news item … “
Do you agree or disagree there are just too many damned opinions out there … and so many based on too little knowledge and too much misinformation?
Everyone is entitled to an opinion, of course (especially on Fluther!), but with so many opposing ones to consider, is it any wonder there’s so much gridlock in Congress and elsewhere?
I’ve thought about this a lot and would love to hear your, er, opinion.
