What Do You Think

“What do you think?”

Most of the time, we have a choice about what to say next. The question is: what do you think? Is it worth comparing? If there’s no common language, you’ve probably answered the same thing for the last two hundred years. Which leads to our first question: what do you think of what’s on offer? We’re not so much given a choice, are we? It doesn’t seem to matter which version of the bakery, which card store, which restaurant, which book, which ad… The choice seems to be: What do you think of the art? What do you think of the food? What do you think of the gift? What do you think of the way the community is organized? It helps to remember that we’re not choosing between the options, we’re choosing between the choices.
