Morton’s Fork is an expression used for a dilemma, especially one in which both choices are equally undesirable. A Morton’s Fork is a specious piece of reasoning in which contradictory arguments lead to the same (unpleasant) conclusion. It is said to originate with the collecting of taxes by John Morton, Archbishop of Canterbury in the late 15th century, who held that a man living modestly must be saving money and could therefore afford taxes, whereas if he was living extravagantly then he was obviously rich and could still afford them.
So, who is playing Morton here? WordPress?
If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?
Either way, we are the victim. If we were not able to write our blog, why would we even think of being here? On the contrary, why would anybody care to read our blog, if we do not play their audience. Guess what? It’s a Good Bye!
Human beings are balanced creatures. They need small doses of everything- good and bad, happy and sad, day and night, summer and winter, spring and autumn, love and hate, oxygen and carbon dioxide too! If we have the capacity to read and/or listen, we also keep the desire to write and/or express.
