“It’s better to be controversial for the right reasons than to be popular for the wrong reasons”. Shimon Peres
What is controversial?
According to Collin Dictionary
‘If you describe something or someone a controversial, you mean that they are the subject of intense public argument, disagreement or disapproval’
Do you love controversy?
My guess is nobody wishes to be controversial.
Nobody wishes to be an enemy to somebody. Why should there be enmity?
That means one can be flexible. But then one loses individuality.
So ultimately it depends on the individual.
According to Abhishek Ratna
“Many a time we let go of some really good ideas just because we feel they are too controversial”
Some say that we should hear what controversial people say and one should encourage healthy debate.
Mahatma Gandhi had a different take
” First they ignore you.
Then they laugh at you.
Then they fight you.
Then you win”
What are your thoughts, my friend especially in blogosphere angle?
Is controversy a must? or just be flexible and carry on.
Do you enjoy reading controversial or touchy subjects?
