Blogging the Truth

This post is one of my first blog posts in English, aimed to be a gudance to my online experience.

There is no reason why your post should be a rubbish, there is definitely something worth telling the world about. Writing just for the sake of writing is meaningless; meaninglessness is what made the lost generation to be called the Lost Generation. The pointlessness is lethal, the nada is deadly. There should be at any length a purpose in writing a piece of something that gives meaning to it.

We all dream a better world to life in; we all dream to have a better one, beginning from our own lives and so on. The idea of thinking globally is intriguing. Why not to think globally? Reasonable reason to begin with, but to think is not enough, you need even to act. This need comes naturally as the need to milk when you are born. So, in order that your thinking globally, to survive you need to feed it with acting.

Acting is actually easy. You do not have to be a revolutionary to justify your acting to defend your ideas and beliefs. You do not have to be a great leader to justify your acting. You do not have to be a harsh antiglobalist to justify your acting. You do not have to be many things to justify the fact that you are acting for the truth, at least what you hold to be the truth. What you can do is actually far more easy than what is told about (or what it has been until now). Shortly, blogging is acting. Yes, I’m serious; blogging is acting. Moreover, blogging is pretty much effective as a kind of acting in support of your beliefs. It can reach a great number of people all around the world; it can be global. Smiling, you can now say think globally and blog globally in stead of think globally and act locally.

At this point you give real meaning of your blogging. You act by writing your thoughts at your blog, by blogging what you consider right and worth shouting for. You do your best at this. And what is more important you do not forget the second point of ‘Valuable Intellectual Traits’ as a critical thinker.

Intellectual Courage: Having a consciousness of the need to face and fairly address ideas, beliefs or viewpoints toward which we have strong negative emotions and to which we have not given a serious hearing. This courage is connected with the recognition that ideas considered dangerous or absurd are sometimes rationally justified (in whole or in part) and that conclusions and beliefs inculcated in us are sometimes false or misleading. To determine for ourselves which is which, we must not passively and uncritically “accept” what we have “learned.” Intellectual courage comes into play here, because inevitably we will come to see some truth in some ideas considered dangerous and absurd, and distortion or falsity in some ideas strongly held in our social group. We need courage to be true to our own thinking in such circumstances. The penalties for non-conformity can be severe.

These is the way you can improve the world you live in; blogging the truth.
