The Power of Blogging

This is an interesting piece of reportage:

Mithun would never speak out openly against Amitabh and fear incurring his wrath especially now that he has started blogging.

Ignore the grammar—that sentence confirms what I’ve always suspected: Blogging is a powerful tool in the hands of the powerful. That means little for the rest of us, who blog to indulge ourselves. There’s nothing wrong with that at all. What else is life about?
