Opinion about Opinions

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.
