The world has become an interesting place where everyone can have a
dumbass opinion. The only thing that separates "the now" from "the then" is that
it is easier to express these opinions now. Any jackass with an internet
connection can do that. Take me and Donald Trump for an example.
What I believe is that though everyone may think that they are logical but all of us are biased in one way or the other.
Take me for an example, I writing my opinion on what I think about how other
form their opinions (ridiculous right). Now if you all ask yourself a simple
question, have you ever been wrong.The answer is never because
you try to make the best use of the information available to serve a
purpose of your choice and make a decision.In the hindsight you might agree that your decision might have been wrong but never in the present.
For e.g. Voldemort apparently didn't like muggles
and he believed killing them would be the sure way to gain more power and become invincible and immortal. Harry Potter had a different opinion which led to Voldemorts downfall. Anakin Skywalker always did the best thing in
his opinion and became the Darth Vader ,to which Master Yoda would have said:
"Bad very this is in Opinion of my". The point I am trying
to make by these stupid examples is that our decisions always seem logical
to us. It seems a redundant
thing to say but if you think about this, we are so opinionated that we feel differently about facts also. Djokovic wins a match; that is a fact and finishes the best
season of his career; for some people it signifies the start of a weak era in
tennis and others interpret it as the result of his hard work and dedication.
Who is Right?
One thing that I find interesting is that people who have a strong
and clear opinion are better decision makers, might be wrong decision makers
but better. If a Candidate running for office has a strong inclination towards
a subject matter he can muster more people to his cause.No one knew what Rahul
Gandhi stood for, his opinions we very unclear,weak and unconvincing. Hitler
had an strong opinion and we all know the result. So what makes an opinion
right, I think it is the decided by which opinion prevailed. If Alan Donald
would not have messed up that last run in the 1999 world cup against Australia
then South Africa would not have been labelled as Chokers. Opinions are given
credibility or discredit by the side that prevails.
Before a side prevail, whether an opinion is wrong or right is a subject to popular interpretation. I am of the opinion that in Indian a leader like Kejriwal
can do wonders, who is to say my opinion is correct or not. Everyone makes a decision they think will best serve the objective
they are looking for. Another problem is that people can have different
objectives for the same thing.
Everyone desires the Dragon balls, for some it is to bring back
their dead friends (primarily Crilin )and for some it is a path to immortality
and destruction. A common man might have an opinion that Dragon balls are a
pain in the ass and bring all the trouble to the world.
So I made up all this bull shit to make a point that we all have an
opinion and our opinion is either right or wrong only in the opinion of others.
So in this world there are people who are conservative in opinion and there are
people who are liberal. I don’t understand why there are not more conservative
liberal. Why this faction is not a big thing. The more I read about them the more I
become certain that I am neither. So for all other who are trying to develop an
opinion here comes another opinion.
the debacle of opinion. One opinion that has messed with the country right now
is that Aamir Khan's wife thinks that our country is going intolerant. As
Paresh Rawal rightly once said: "Patni hai ki Panauti hai". Even snapdeal is feeling the heat
of the Dil ki deal it did with Aamir.
Statement like these implicate that the minority is scared of the conservative(right wing)
government. The elite Media has created an environment that is
trying to create an opinion among the citizens of India that since the BJP has
come to power it means that the minorities will suffer. I think that the
conservative government in India is more liberal than the liberal wing(if there
is one) in the nations controlled by these minorities.
said that, quoting Joey "It’s a Moo
Point". We should not make this comparison because we are Indians and the
day we start comparing ourselves to these nation all hope will be lost. India
is and has been a tolerant country and everyone should stick to this fact. We
have been an tolerant nation since long and that’s the reason we co-exist even after
being such a diverse nation. Our country is a like the world of Marvel where we
have many people of influence who do not agree on everything but eventually
work for the better. We have even accommodated Hulk ideologies in our society
and still we are intolerant. Misquoting LFMAO famous song: I am an Indian and I
know it. And I am proud of it.
I believe that bulk of
the Indian media is liberal (left) which is giving unnecessary air to these
unrelated events of intolerance. If you discuss the same thing all day long it
feels that our country is very bad and everything is going wrong. I totally
agree that these things should be condemned and people have a right to protest
in a non-violent way but making it the talking agenda portrays all of us Indian
as Intolerant.Which we are not. It's like Mundunglus Fletcher's acts defining
what Order of Phoenix stands for, which is outright wrong and ridiculous.
Aamir Khan said is his opinion and there might be a reason for him feeling that
way. He has even given a clarifying position on his stand.I think he deeply cares about the country and has exercised his right to free speech effectively in the past to raise the issues he cares about deeply. Even after doing everything he could for the Nights Watch Jon Snow was stabbed by his brothers after taking a stand that was better for the seven kingdom but did not sit well with his own brothers. Apparently he knew nothing of how his brothers might react. Extreme opinion and actions never serve any good.
problem I have is with the greed of the people. The greed of the politicians, big media
houses and big corporations for money and power and their use of religion to
meet this purpose. Religion has been used long and in many instances by people
in position to manipulate the commons to meet their purpose. Why don’t we learn
from history (its right in front of our eyes). I guess it is human tendency to
believe what others say rather than checking facts for themselves before
forming an opinion. The most dangerous opinion are the ones that are based on
wrong facts. I believe India being an intolerant nation is one such opinion.
