Asch Conformity Experiment

Most people I have known have been conformists, I have been as well, I started smoking because I saw adults doing it and I wanted to be more like an adult.

When 9/11 happened, I was in a bar drinking coffee with 20 or so other people, it was on TV in the morning. I said the US government did that, everyone looked at me as if I was from Mars and many called me a conspiracy theorist, or crazy. It was the first time I was ever called a conspiracy theorist although I didn't believe the official story behind the OKC bombings or the Kennedy assassination. I cannot imagine what could make anyone believe the official version of these events.

Being self employed means you interact with government more, the more interaction, the less appreciation. I wonder if most people that saw 9/11 as an inside job also live outside the box - I believe this is true when I meet others like me.

Anon, why don't you at least choose a name?

That aside, what do YOU think about this little quote:

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. " - Edmund Burke

People either figure out that civilization sits on a foundation of ethics and demand ethical behaviour from governments - or die. Its that simple and its a matter of survival, not comfort.

Magdelena said...

Indeed, there is no where in the definition of 'truth' where it says that it must be 'comfortable'.

In reality, more often than not, truth is quite ugly and disturbing.

Penny said...

how do you expect to survive to an old age without being aware of the very issues that affect you?

The problem here is that you cannot tell a monkey that he can get out of the cage if he doesn't even know he is in a cage !

I really have no idea who this guy is. I asked my neighbor and he said his computer has been broken and he hasn't been on the web in months.

I had my suspicions it could be him, this sort of sounds like him but he is farrrr from someone who worked all his life and is now a millionaire.
