A Dangerous Luxury

I get really concerned about a lot of the discussions on websites. Particularly when they have something to do with health and wellness: things that really matter a lot. There’s a lot more to helping people than quoting some facts and statistics, and a personal anecdote or two.

Here’s something written over three decades ago, and is even more true today:

“A point of view can be a dangerous luxury when substituted for insight and understanding.”        

–Herbert Marshall McLuhan (Canadian Communications Theorist and Educator, 1911-1980)
