Perhaps I’m getting old, but something I’ve noticed is that increasingly more people these days seem to be very aggressive with their entrenched opinions, and there seems to be a lot of polarisation in all areas of life; there seems to be less nuance, and one is forced to pick one side or the other all the time. What if you disagree with both, for example? Is this because of the internet and how we are bombarded 24/7 with news, opinions and controversies? Is this because today people can instantly voice their opinions and react and this goes around the world in a fraction of a second before they really have had time to think about things? I don’t want to sound like a Luddite, but at the same time, the voice of the softer, gentler, middle way often seems to get drowned out by all the “shouting”.
