Do you have an opinion? Does it matter?
The world is constantly changing and so are opinions, which we often find challenging due to the fact that we also have our own opinions.
We are fortunate to be living in a country that, in the main, grants us freedom of speech and more and more people are now stepping up to the plate and confidently speaking up, which can so often be a double-edged sword.
We have discovered that social media is great for putting your opinion across, but it also gives idiots a voice, too . . . far too often without any repercussions.
This, in itself, is a modern day curse and I have personally witnessed the downside to such shenanigans.
Friendly debate will soon be a thing of the past, if our politicians, world and industry leaders don’t control their emotions and show evidence of professional respect, while setting an example for generations to come.
Education is key for a balanced debate and there IS always two sides to an argument (did you see what I did there?).
As a comedian I’m often asked, “What happens to jokes that aren’t funny? Well, they become politicians!”
