A matter of expression

Expressing one’s opinions in an open arena such as the web or the press, requires courage in overcoming self-consciousness and other insecurities. For that reason, I admire columnists, reporters and bloggers alike, who bare their souls for all to read, fearless of the consequences of their published words.

From time immemorial, those who have stuck out their heads, voiced their emotive theories, themselves have gained immortality. Socrates to Silvia Plath, Charles Darwin to Yogananda, whether we agree or not with their philosophies, have encouraged us to reflect on our own belief systems. Is it not then incumbent on all of us, to occasionally rise above the parapet, and stir up the pot of status quo? Perhaps, we too, could help challenge entrenched belief systems which may no longer hold true.
