Everyone Deserves a Voice, but Not an Audience

With a title like that, I should certainly get some clarifications out of the way. First, I’m absolutely for the freedom of speech, but as you’ll see if you read on, social media has changed the scope and parameters of that freedom — so, un-bunch your undergarments. Secondly, I’m well aware that I myself might not deserve an audience, but at least I’m kind and not spewing lies and disinformation, or worse still, organizing some sort of insurrection. The bar is pretty low now, isn’t it?
