Should insults be the only way of expressing opinions? asks Prince David
Ghanaian actor Prince David Osei has voiced concern over the growing culture of people resorting to insults when expressing their opinions about issues.
In a recent Twitter (X) post, the Open Scandal actor decried the disturbing trend of using insults and disrespectful language to address issues in the country.
He asserted that insults have become the norm when expressing opinions, particularly among the younger generation, who openly insult leaders on various platforms, including radio, television, and social media.
"I am deeply concerned about the future of Ghana. It pains me to see how we have become a nation of insults, lacking respect for morals. The younger generation finds it acceptable to insult leaders openly on various platforms such as radio, television, and social media. It seems that insults have become the preferred method of expressing opinions."
The actor also expressed concern about the youth, who he believes are becoming misguided and desperate in their pursuit of wealth, resorting to various means that may not be ethical.
“The youth of our nation are becoming misguided and desperate, resorting to various means to make money," he wrote.
Prince David Osei urged Ghanaians to take action and be the change they wish to see in their country and similarly called for a collective effort to renew minds and strive for individual change.
“It is imperative that we take action and become the change we wish to see. Let us renew our minds and strive for individual change. We must remember that Ghana belongs to all of us, not just a select few."
