In post 1994 South Africa, everyone has a constitutional right to freedom of expression. With that freedom however, comes an equal responsibility. In both social and professional worlds, expressing an opinion can sometimes be risky.
Subsequent to proliferation of social media, it has become extraordinarily easy to widely broadcast and spread personal opinions and statements. Making ill-considered controversial statements can however damage reputations or brands and leave both the author and associated institutions vulnerable to critique.
Holding your opinions back might however be more damaging than expressing them. Opinions are what fuel momentum and dialogue – all ideas, plans and decisions begin with opinions, and if people consistently refrain from voicing these, the effect will be silence and self-censorship.
Join us in studio for this edition of FrankTalk as we interrogate the implications of both voicing your opinions and leaving them unspoken.
