If you don’t conform to the crowd now, you’re a ‘radical’ by Simon Black
I like this short article by Simon Black. I agree with everything he said. I guess I'm a radical too...
"Deep down we human beings are social creatures. We seek acceptance from the group. It’s why conformity is so much easier than standing apart from the crowd, even when the crowd makes absolutely no sense. And those who don’t conform and think independently are labeled radicals."
"Our financial system is a great example of this. They’ve spiked the punch bowl with so many lies. Home prices always go up. The debt doesn’t matter because we owe it to ourselves. We can always print more money. None of this nonsense is true. But the financial establishment tells us so. Big media repeats it over and over again. Eventually hundreds of millions of people believe it."
