Twitterland can be both a good thing and a bad thing: good because it gives everyone the opportunity to speak and bad because some people say things that we don’t want to hear. Now what you have to get your head around is the fact that _Paul_And_Land_ is pretty similar and believes that the right of every single person to express their thoughts is fundamental to existence. Likewise, its also a pretty basic right that none of us should be oppressed by anyone or anything, someone or something, some system or bunch of views or whatever. Think you’ll agree that these are fundamentally okay as a set ground rules.

Problem is, and this is a problem for _Paul_And_Land_ as well as the big, bad world in general, that these two conflict. Let’s say, for example, that one of the world’s World of Roy’s pops up and proclaims that _Paul_And_Land_ is oppressing him (or her) because they’re not a plumber or electrician. Our ‘new’ World of Roy Roy could be a Fishmonger from Leith. Or a self-employed Rug Importer. Or an urban farmer. Have we mentioned any of those in the ‘World of Roy’ series? Honestly, no. So what we have is a paradox which is not a toilet cleaner but a difficult problem. And difficult problems need difficult answers. Trouble is, we (that’s all of us not just _Paul_And_Land_) are not good at difficult answers, preferring to let someone else do it. That is until the difficult answer is not the one we want.

Think on, if we want some of the difficult answers to be the ones we want then we better start taking responsibility for all the difficult answers and stop copping out. Is that okay with everyone? Doh!
