More people are saying less with loud microphones

A few learned to speak up

Adding value to speech


Is my blog thoughtful and deep enough to be of any value?

Seth Godin posted this June 03, 2014

Opening the doors for the masses to speak, giving everyone who cares to have one a microphone–it has led to an explosion in people speaking.

And most people, most of the time, are saying virtually nothing.

Nothing worth reading, nothing worth repeating, certainly nothing worth remembering.

They’re speaking, not speaking up.

But a few people…

A few people, people who would never have been chosen by those in power, are saying more. Writing more deeply, connecting more viscerally, changing the things around them.

That’s each of us, at our best.

There’s a cost of speaking up, of course. The cost of being wrong, or rubbing someone the wrong way, or merely in living with the uncertainty of what will happen next.

There’s a cost to being banal, though.

That cost isn’t as easily felt, but it’s real. It’s the cost of boring your audience, of dumping ‘me too’ on people who have something better to do with their time. And especially, the cost of living in hiding, giving in to our fear.

Every day we can wonder and worry about whether a blog post is worth it.

Not whether or not the microphone is working, but whether it’s worth using at all.

It’s much easier to spend a lot of time making your microphone louder than it is working on making your message more compelling…

The path of chiming in is safe and easy and carries little apparent risk and less reward (for you and for your readers).

Choosing to dig deep and say more, though, is where both risk and reward live.


The Israeli poet Natan Zakh declared on Nov. 17, 2013:

“I fled  Nazi State to find myself in a Fascist State. The State of Israel has been living by the Sword. I would have remained in Europe if I knew how Israel will be behaving as an apartheid ideological society.

This Zionist State failed to realize its objective.

This Zionist State, supposed to be moving to the country of milk and honey, is plagued by corruption and running by the strong arm policy”

This Zionist State is living its last years, as was the decline of the Roman Empire.

Instead of linking with neighbors whom we stole their lands, we are preparing atomic bombs and teaching hatred.

Gaza is under terrible blocus  and the missiles we are getting are legitimate reactions from the Palestinians.

(The Wall of Shames has reverted Israel to the ghetto mentality in practice)

« J’ai fui d’un Etat nazi pour me retrouver dans un Etat fasciste »

POSTÉ LE 17 NOVEMBRE 2013 par Halalbook dans BUZZ

Le 10 novembre 2013, le journal hébreu Yediot Ahronot a rapporté que le grand poète israélien Natan Zakh a déclaré que le sionisme a échoué à réaliser son objectif.

Selon lui, «  l’Etat du lait et du miel  » promis n’est maintenant que mal et corruption. Il a par ailleurs appelé à boycotter les colonies sionistes.

«  Si j’avais su que le sionisme se concrétiserait dans un pays qui vit par l’épée, je serais resté en Europe. J’ai fui d’un Etat nazi pour me retrouver dans un Etat fasciste  », dit-il.

Gaza est toujours sous un affreux blocus, ses roquettes reflètent une résistance légitime, a ajouté le critique littéraire, Lauréat du Prix Bialik (en 1982) et Lauréat du Prix d’Israël (en 1995).

Israël vit «  aujourd’hui comme l’empire romain dans ses derniers jours. Ici, ils nous apprennent la haine et préparent des bombes atomiques, au lieu d’essayer de nous rapprocher de nos voisins dont nous avons volé la terre  », a-t-il conclu.
