Why are most of the comments on the internet written by idiots? Is this a slice of the population as a whole, or are more reasonable people less likely to express their opinions?

If you are asking this question, you are smarter than most people in general. Or think that they are smarter. Indeed, sometimes it is difficult to distinguish a sound, but marginal position, with a reasonable basis, from an ideology that denies any dissent and constructive criticism towards its bearer.

  1. It is human to make mistakes. You almost never know you know something for sure. Doubt is a powerful force, so most people don't have the habit of testing their knowledge, either for relevance or validity.

  2. No matter how strange it may seem, if a person, like me, for example, does not understand the issue, he, one way or another, needs to contribute, otherwise the world will collapse.

  3. Lack of ability to express. If a person cannot present his thoughts to society exactly the way he sees it, then nothing good will come of it.

The slice is still not a population, but only visitors to this site. The local audience is very different from the average.

The second also takes place, serious people work, they choose only interesting questions as they have time and want to write an answer.
