    I wasn't referring to anyone in particular, just society as a whole.

    I decided to move my last topic from this thread to one of its own, called Be the Authority, since these are both topics that should be considered, but are not the same.

    The topic is using your own brain. Your views are more important to me and, I trust, to most people on the forum, than are those of any expert or published authority you might link to. That doesn't mean they are necessarily more credible, or less credible, for that matter, but I've probably already read all of the published authorities that I'm interested in. You might consider that they are deemed authorities because they are willing to advance an agenda, not because that agenda is credible or true.

    Feel free to post a link, or embed a video, if you think that it will advance whatever it is that you have to say, but don't let the article or the video say it for you. If it supplements your voice, fine, but don't let it be your voice. I'm more interested in what you have to say. After all, this is a discussion forum, not a news aggregation site. Your views are as valid as anyone else's. Your knowledge counts. Don't give your brain over to the experts, and don't let the published media be your voice.

    It must be a glitch. I wondered why it turned pink after I had posted it. Not sure if it happened right away or when I came back to the thread later. I don't think I can reword it at this point, but I'm fine with @Ken Anderson deleting the whole post. Not sure anyone will click on it, but it's just too weird to have a post hyperlinking to your personal information.
    (Ken...........Post # 16 is the post being referred to.)

    The closure on the quote that preceded it wasn't closed properly so it made a link out of it. I fixed it.
