Lack of freedom

Contrary to the popular notion, the blogosphere is not the place to find free opinion. Many authors and columnists push their theories; various organizations push their agenda, and most serious-seeming outpourings are nothing but adolescent babble. Rarely one finds any well thought out post positing a really fresh approach.

This is not due to lack of creativity, but lack of freedom. Most people are bound to some organization or the other. Although we are a democracy, people are barred from taking part in any kind of political activity or expressing their opinions, as per their service rules. The political sphere, therefore, remains the fiefdom of the unemployed. [TNM]
