Point of View
I conceived the idea of establishing a platform where points of view are shared when I was on long vacation before my retirement. During that period, I realized that I was getting involved in one-to-one discussions with friends and family. Different issues were discussed, and some the discussions became extremely animated. It was a lot of fun, and I learned a few life-changing ideas. It was exciting, and I decided to take this one step further. There are a lot of issues in the media, but I am very passionate about five of them: inequality, human trafficking, the status of women, the environment, and understanding China. I felt that if I provide my views, people will respond one way or another. Besides, having different views will be a good learning process.
So I invite your comments. They do not have to be politically correct, and you are at liberty to say whatever you wish. You will not be judged, and no matter what your inclinations or affiliations are, every point of view is welcome. However, the language used should not be abusive, be insulting, nor make personal attacks. We need to maintain the decorum of this platform to make it meaningful, rewarding and fulfilling.
You can put forward a point of view which is entirely your own. Or, it can be based on public opinion at large. I feel that one’s own point of view would be more authentic. It is my request that people share their own personal views. They are more compelling and credible. This is known as the First person point of view, where the narrator has seen, felt, or experienced it himself.
Some of you may be wondering what I will do with all these comments I will be receiving. I do not have any strategy yet. I am thinking on the lines of grouping the responses in affirming and opposing categories. And, then, I could channel them to achieve positive results.
