I base this entirely on the fact that in the last couple of months I’ve started commenting on articles and stuff shared on the one sub-Reddit I frequent, like, in a way that suggests I think my opinions might actually matter or have value.
Previously I was convinced this was the remit of the foolish who believed that their opinions mattered. Which I was entirely sure of because my opinion was as entirely worthless as everyone else’s and only people who’ve managed to convince other people to pay them money for words they’ve written had any weight to their opinions. Which is, of course, foolish in itself. For I’ve now realised that some of my favourite writers give away all their work for free.
So yeah, it’s either that or I’m getting more stupid. Or both. Both are equally likely.
