You are not an expert


You will miss things


The internet knows

The truth and lies

You did not spend years learning

It’s obvious that

Details are wrong

Only snap judgements matter

Education doesn’t matter

Experience doesn’t matter

When you can’t see the big picture

It’s plain




Emotion is-

The only thing that

You can believe

fact or fiction
