“Social media gives legions of idiots the right to speak when they once only spoke at a bar after a glass of wine, without harming the community … but now they have the same right to speak as a Nobel Prize winner. It’s the invasion of the idiots”
And he added :
“The television promoted the village idiot, to whom the viewer felt superior. The tragedy of the Internet is that it is making the village idiot a bearer of truth.”
“Facebook has multiplied plots and hoaxes, disseminated the most obscure lies, reinforced superstitions and sublimated the wishes of everyone.”
I disagree on 2 points:
- In bar, very often, when an idiot speaks, many approves.
-A Nobel prize can be an idiot out from his field of experience.
I beg your pardon: the original quotes were in Italian, I got them in French and translated them back in English.
