opinion...

the mantra of this era seems to be...this is what i believe to be true... don't confuse me with the facts!!!
but things are rarely what they seem...
...
with the availability of the instant mass communication of the internet comes the ever-present reality that there seems to be a huge misunderstanding as to the difference between fact and opinion, with expectations to swiftly react without thinking about or accepting the ramifications. there is another perspective.
...
integrity and accountability seem to be totally insignificant to many who feel their opinions should be adopted and acted upon as "truth" or fact. Rampant exploitation through manipulation or fear is not a new concept...
but i would venture to say it has never had such an instant platform throughout history as we have available to us now.
...
in order to learn from our past mistakes instead of trying to erase them we need to acknowledge them. the more time that passes the more Einsteins words that fear stupidity and greed run the world seems to be true.
...
the pendulum will swing however, as it always does...
how much further it goes may be measured in our ability to discern between fact and opinion.
