Gary Silverman writing in the Financial Times:
I just worry about where we are heading. This conversation of ours has been taking troubling turns all year and it’s easy to see why. With so many people talking at the same time, the shrillest voices are more likely to be heard and the most gruesome images are more likely to be seen (being a Kardashian helps, too, but explaining that would require a wider discussion).
It’s time to start listening more and writing our thoughts in journals. Maybe if we refine our thoughts before speaking, we can start to have a more intelligent conversation.
