A long time ago speech was effective.

But now speech is no longer effective.

What's up with that?

What killed the power of speech?

It's simple really. You talk about certain things, and people either decide it's too hard to think about, it's too controversial, or there's no answer.

But how do you solve things if you can't talk about them?

Texting. Plain and simple, texting has had a major impact on speaking.

Knuckleheads that didn't know how to use it to their advantage by displaying signs of extreme language, ideas and behavior.

Well, I think it's because there's a forum for every person on earth to voice their opinion, about anything they like... The Internet. Before, you'd wait in bated breath to hear speeches from great men such as JFK, or Martin Luther King, and how they were going to revolutionize and what not.

But now everyone has a voice and opinion that they can put across, and that's something in which the couldn't do before. Unfortunately most believe their views/opinions are more important than others. So that's drowned out any genuine speech to arise from all the nonsense that goes about now-a-days.

You can thank Facebook, Youtube and Twitter for that.

Just what I reckon though, I hadn't thought much of it before you brought it up.

Or drunks. Hairy, smelly, ugly, speaks in grunts and mumbles, drags women by the hair...

Can't tell the difference, really.

I think telepathy, empathy and being in union could make speech, a vehicle with much lesser accuracy, unnecessary.

also arrogant and or rude people who don’t answer back. and of course constant lies kill speech.

what do you think killed speech ?
