I don’t like echoes.
They frighten me with the sound
Of my opinions.
In the last couple of years, I’ve been desperately trying to get out of my social media echo chamber. Having been shocked by the ebb and flow of world politics, I now try to read more of what I don’t like; I fact check and weigh up opinions that had previously existed only on my periphery. My new mantra: Read wide. Read deep. Read discerningly.
