Being too abstract is boring

Abstract wishes, opinions and promises are very boring and totally meaningless.

For example, a Syrian who just keeps telling his wishes of peace for Syria and stops at that point. He wishes peace, just peace as an abstract concept, and stops at that point and omits all the details and the evolutions of the situation in Syria! Well, everyone claims to seek peace, no one would say I’m against the peace!

Or that one who keeps talking about equality among all humans so in general as an abstract concept and omits all the social, cultural, biological and mental diversities between people! Well, of course people are equal in the basics, but they are not the same! People are different and societies are different!

Therefore, being so general tends to be quite equal to say nothing! Expressing wishes and opinions in such an abstract level is too loose exactly as if nothing has been expressed at all!
