According to Chris Prillo – “None of us have anything original to say”
Guess what? Even that is not original. I have been saying just that for well over a year now and finallly here is confirmation that I am not just being cranky.
So, what’s happening to dry up the well of ideas? For one thing a distinct lack of diversity heavily weighs down the quality and level of creativity. Anti-social individuals from isolated communities cannot be expected to contribute much of anything valuable to social intercourse. Writers with litle or no life experiences cannot be expected to bring deep insights on the twists and turns of society or on any other areas of interest outside of their immediate passion which is usually restricted to technology and just about everything that should or can be said about that is being voiced over and over.
The problem is that those with nothing to say keep saying stuff. They yammer on trying to stumble across something humorous or insightful only to fill the air with verbose clutter. Let me shut up because that is exactly what I am doing. I can say any of this because I have a lifetime of deep experiences that teach me how to shut up when I need to!
What is needed are new fresh voices with different viewpoints and takes on things whether those are off-beat, weird or unpopular.
