I didn't read it that way. I read it that the legitimate voices are
being over taken by the fake agenda-biased voices through crowd
sourcing for money. Just an alert that what you are reading may not
be a person's true opinion because they have actually thought about
the thing they are commenting on -- and not just one person doing
that, but thousands.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
