People are sheep. It’s so easy to get caught up in a crowd, especially in big crowds. It doesn’t matter if they are right or wrong, if they support ideas and thoughts that you support, it’s all about the size, it’s about the numbers.
Everyone wants to belong to a group and I understand that. We need the security, we need to belong somewhere as an individual, and some people really don’t care where they belong or end up in, just as long as they have the support of any kind. That’s why some of the stupidest and immoral people have such a large following, it’s the mob mentality that they are exploiting.
You can be right all you want, but without the whole crew behind you, or even worse, if the same crew is on the other side, well then, you buddy are just out of luck.
And that is what annoys me the most? When did numbers start being reason? Do we no longer think with our own heads, or are we just so tired that we don’t even care so we take the easier route, or has that just been our mentality all along?
Recently I have noticed this pattern of behavior more and more, at work, with my classmates… and many of them do have different opinions when you talk to them in private, but they do not speak up, they keep it to themselves even though they might think it’s wrong, immoral or illegitimate. It’s amazing what you can find out about people when you talk to them in person.
Why are we as a species so obsessed with numbers? Why do we care so much to be a part of a big group, to be alienated from one another? Even on social media, all we seem to care about are the numbers, no matter what job we do, if we have something to offer or not, everyone just wants to have more and more. Everyone cares attention and yet they are so easily boxing themselves in groups they do not support or believe in.
That is a paradox of the whole issue.
What if everything is to change? If the people you now follow lost the numbers and reason started winning? Would you still want to be a part of that group then? That is the thought that I follow and that is the only thing I am following- my own heart, my own gut and my own brain.
There are so many people on our planet that DO deserve us to support them, why don’t we start today? Maybe the situation could change, and everything could be right again…
