What makes you think?

I ran into a great question: What Makes Writing A Blog Post Unique? from Blogopolis Blueprint:

In the end, the question really is, What makes you think?

It is probably a  result of growing up Baptist, but I think a lot about culture:

  • Where are we now?

  • Where are we going?

  • How can I make the culture better?

  • How am I making the culture worse?

The issue is, I am not a person who is into confrontation.  I believe that consensus is very important.  I have been writing a series about Fandom and Speculative Fiction over at dashPunk, and it never ceases to amaze me how often the topics I think are going to be controversial are not, and the ones I think won't are.

As I watched this video, it really got me thinking: What makes you think?  How can someone who is not confrontational spark a thought in their readers mind to get the conversation going?

Please let me know what you think.
