What fortunate times we live in these days. In Olden Tymes life was black and white. Something either was or it wasn't. There was no 57 varieties of grey, (or is it 50?). Life was not so multi-coloured as it is now.
Today, there are many aspects to every situation; and more besides you have not even thought of.
If there is a political story breaking on the news, we are fortunate enough to have an expert on the subject on TV to explain it all and tell us how it could be resolved.
If there's a medical epidemic somewhere or other that spells gloom and doom for us all, there's an expert to explain how it could be controlled or averted. And why it happened in the first place.
If there's an economic crisis with banks in difficulties and businesses closing down, there's an expert explaining the whys and wherefores and the whos to blame for it.
If the weather is too hot, too cold, too wet or too dry, an expert will explain that it is all your fault for not re-cycling that plastic bottle or plastic bag which you should have eaten instead of throwing away.
There are experts everywhere on every subject these days. One can't break wind without an expert explaining how it contributes to climate change.
Did you know that according to Chaos Theory, (created by an expert no doubt), the butterfly effect is an assumption that if a butterfly somewhere far away flutters its wings then the air turbulence it creates, no matter how small, will move a little more air, and that little air will in turn move more air, and more and more that eventually, several weeks later, a hurricane will develop somewhere else far away. Can you imagine that? A flap of a butterfly’s wings creates a hurricane weeks later?
Armed with this information from an expert on TV, I know kill every butterfly in sight. Imagine how many hurricanes and tsunamis I have prevented single-handedly.
Experts are everywhere on every subject you can think of. Especially with the Internet so easily at hand. You can now self-diagnose, probably wrongly, on every ailment you may or may not have.
If you have a pimple on your backside just Google it and an expert on the subject will tell you all about it.
The other day I read an article by an expert on how to weld metal plates together to make a ship. It was quite riveting I tell you.
I read another article by another expert explaining that at the time of Jane Austen all the ladies wore those wide and long flowing dresses to cover their bow legs. I did not know that. Did you? Well, now you know! In fact, Shakespeare wrote about it when he said, "What manner of a man is this, who walks in parenthesis?"
So there you have it. There are experts everywhere on every subject you can think of.
Which leads me to ask, "With all these experts why is the world in such a terrible state?"
