SO on facebook i put posts that are controversial and so many of my "friends" on there get offended because i put that "Some people seem to love to turn to drinking when something bad happens. Pretty sad." So many people though that it was non of my business to them drinking, i do agree, but isnt a statue update on facebook what is one my mind? I believe it is. I dont get the big deal in putting my views on the world on facebook. So what i think this government is corrupt and that i dont believe in a god. People put statues on how god is so great, so y cant i put statues saying that there is no god? Sometimes i wonder why thy keep me on as their "friend", Wait, I do know why, So they can look like they have alot of "friends" Sometimes i wonder how this world will survive in a place where people cant speak their views.

It seems to me that the people who told you that their drinking was none of your business were upset because your status just hit too close to home.

Statues? Have you been drinking?

But, yeah. Sure. You should be able to share your views with the world. But remember, you are not apart from that world. You are a social animal that must learn to navigate many aspect of that society. That means, despite your right to bluntly point out that someone is stupid, it will likely mean that that person will not take kindly to your observation no matter how true or how much right you had in pointing it out.

Put your views out there all you want, but if you want to win friends and influence others, you better find a better strategy.
