Contradictions


We live in a world full of contradiction. It seems that one person’s logic is another’s fallacy. This is my attempt to figure out (or at the very least, question) the underlying logic in our culture. I love how the blogging community specifically and the communications world as a whole is increasing the dialogue, helping us decide what is truth (and sometimes, it ain’t beauty).

While, yes, there are 112.5 million blogs currently on the Web, each blog creates viewpoints. You agree with some and despise the others, but at the end of the day, we’re trying to evolve. Evolve our notions of right and wrong. Evolve our predilections so that we can listen to ‘the other side’ with a bit more openness.

That said, our society (i.e. The West) has created rules that prevent peace and harmony. Because there has always been some form of a soap box of which to exclaim (and proclaim) your views — not coincidentally, this soap box has gotten larger (as have the people that surround it) as technology evolves — will always have not just an opposing viewpoint, but even sometimes a contradictory one.

This is just one feeble person’s attempt to break down what we know and add to the conversation. I’m looking forward to this discussion. Hopefully with you. If not, well, I always love the sound of my own voice.
