So the right to voice your opinion has become a little misconstrued these days. This post isn't necessarily about politics, but about the influence, time and misinformation passed from person to person. With there being so many news outlets and social media influencer's, it is extremely difficult for the average person to form a valuable opinion on any situation. To put it in perspective, most people only have time to read headline news. Think about, how often do you take the time to digest what you've read? I imagine not as often as you'd like. It's not that the news is corrupt as Trump says, but you may be reading only a linear news outlet.
Social media has become something to cherish and explore, and a divisive, manipulative creature. It's an immense task to sift through all of the bullshit fake news about showering hippos, laser shooting cats and dogs that say "I love you." We can spend countless hours watching immobilized brain food in lieu of more replenish-able knowledge, such as "Japan sending [one of their] warship's to protect a US supply vessel." (bbc.com) It's our job to stay wide-eyed and competent.
The man sitting on the stump is yet another victim of fake news. Not saying that I agree with everything, or anything, that Trump supports, although, if time and energy were spent being active and not becoming dormant on a stump, there could be change. Development isn't a man holding a biased sign. Development is the encouraging gusto a person has to lead individuals to the greater good of society, to make a meaningful impact. We have enough people sitting around. This country of ours is filled with adolescence. We someone are incapable of holding the boiling water that we repeatedly burn themselves with.
