With Me or Against Me

We live in a binary world. We worry that technology is taking over, but that isn’t my real worry. It is simply that every thought, every opinion seems to be a 1 or a 0. You’re with me or against me. You don’t agree with me? Then you must agree with my enemy. You must be my enemy. There must be something more, something more elastic, some movement of thought.

Does anyone even change their opinion anymore? Hear an argument and think, actually??? Maybe… They could be right!

We shouldn’t blame technology for this. We choose the tools, our information sources and the platforms to spread  our thoughts. We decide if instant gratification, an instant hit is what we need. We can’t fool ourselves that there is no time for more, there is, we just have to use it better. And think.
