Most people are conditioned, without them realising, to be an agreeing machine. They follow the orders, commands and suggestions of others without much thought. Their reasons could vary. It could be from not wanting to disrupt the status quo to not bothering to think at all. What this does to society at large is one that is more easier to manage than having everyone thinking away, but on the individual level, it takes away the gift that human beings has been bestowed with; the ability to think. You might have followed someone else’s lead, but you are accountable on your actions nonetheless. Stop following the herd and start thinking. Do not just blindly accept ideas and thoughts just because they are there. Think it through. Irregardless if they are from established sources. That does not change the fact that you are still responsible for your own actions.
