“All Views Are My Own” (Yeah, Right!)

A heuristic;  Anyone that has written “All views are my own”, on their Twitter account or blog (or anywhere for that matter) has nothing original to say.

If they’ve put this as a headline on their account then by definition it means that they are worried what other people think – usually because that person is a spineless employee or a bureaucrat.

Therefore their writing will not be honest or accurate.  After all, good ideas and insights are often not pleasant and sometimes downright controversial.

Typical douche bags with nothing original to say

When they say that all their views are their own, what they mean to say is: “All my views have been shaped by the mainstream, because I’m too afraid to think or say anything original”.

Good old Oscar Wilde got it right:

“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”
