When you want to remember.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This is the twenty-second in a series of posts reflecting on our willingness to remember and the quality of that knowledge. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
Writing. I have always loved writing. Whether it’s a letter to a pen pal, a lover or someone we have a disagreement with, writing removes a barrier that sometimes seems insurmountable in person. The Internet proves us right on this point today. We are in an era of freedom of opinion and freedom to share it. Far from being inconsequential, these new ways of doing things even have the merit of creating a new dynamic where everyone’s opinion counts. In the old days, we had to work hard to find out what was going on deep inside someone’s mind. Today, we sometimes wish we knew less.
Not that everyone’s opinion is useless, but it rarely advances a cause in practice. Having to listen to and read everyone’s opinion takes time. Unfortunately for us, this leads to a massive filtering of the messages we receive and our filters are generally biased. We like to hear from people who have a clear opinion and it is always nice to count on people with whom we share the same ideologies. I have often told you that the best sources are those that, in sufficient numbers, bring a range of different points of view. The same goes for general knowledge. This is where we are going.
