There’s a lot of chatter out there and a cacophony of noise, people talking at each other more than to each other. In this age of mass communication, one might hope for the reverse. It doesn’t appear that way to me.
The surface clamor drowns out deeper thought. Banal ideological rants, usually reposted from political party propaganda, lack critical insight in most cases. It kind of reminds me of a title of a book about introverts written by Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.
