There is so much noise in our world today. It seems everyone has an opinion on everything, and if you happen to disagree with their opinion then you are one of the intolerant or unenlightened ones. Historically, opinions have never been in short supply. This much isn’t new. What is new are the multiple platforms people have available to voice their opinions.
Traditional and social media never sleep and are never quiet. Much – if not most – of what is being talked about has little value. It certainly has no eternal value. It is just noise, and distracting noise at that. There remain real issues in this world, real problems in need of a solution. Perhaps it is easier to focus on made up crisis than to confront what is really going on.
