Before the Internet existed, stupid people‘s stupid opinions went for the most part unheard. Sure, their immediate family/friends/bartenders would be subjected to their BS, but that’s about it. No harm, no foul, no crippling embarrassment.
But now that social media reigns supreme, everyone has an opinion that can get eyeballs in mere seconds. It may be making the world a dumber place, but it’s also allowing these dummies to out themselves.
