Freedom from opinion

Those with fervently held opinions tend to be convinced of their importance, though some of us understand that opinions are as disposable as Kleenex. Please, don’t tell me your opinion. Tell me what you know, assuming you know anything and that it holds some interest. ....

Theodore Dalrymple...speaks for many of us:
“Thanks to so-called social media, we have lost one of the most cherished freedoms of all, namely that of freedom from opinion.”
