So should you. Other people don't decide the worth of your viewpoint. Even if they don't pay attention to it or react badly, that's no reason not to write your essays. Believing your own point of view is worthy and writing because you have something to say ought to be enough, and in some cases, that belief itself will make others take it more seriously. And no thought is ever truly new. The most you can do to create original content is express your point of view unabashedly as you see it, because perceptions are what's actually original. No one else is you and no else will ever be able to be you, and that's something that can never be taken away via social isolation. There is inherent worth in that, in your expression, in the way one person is able to say the same thing differently than someone else, focusing on different aspects, having different valuations, understanding differently simply because they are the only one of them who exists.
I hope you do publish your essays here.
