Conformity

 

Feelings of disgust fill me when I observe the identity of
an individual being crushed by the widespread need to fit
in with society and be like everyone else. Differences in
character, appearance, and emotion are created by unique
pasts, and form the foundation for personal beliefs. When
these differences are erased by society^s attempt to create
similar beings, individualism is lost.
 
I acquired these values from my personal intuition and
taking advice from my mentors. Throughout my life, I have
been blessed with a combination of two traits; I am
observant and skeptical. Watching other people^s lives and
hearing other people^s opinions has given me the impression
that the human spirit has been confined to the
impersonation of other people^s wisdom and virtue. I
believe in the saying that imitation is the sheerest form
of flattery, but I also believe that it henders the
evolution of a person^s mind. To the best of my knowledge,
this is what my intuition on the conformity of mankind is
based upon.
 
The other source that aided in the installment if
individualism in me, is the various authors, poets,
songwriters, and other people who I value as authority. Any
sort of publication that celebrates the individual captures
my attention and can range from the books and essays that
we read in class to the graphic content in the music of
Korn. Conformity really binds this world in a tourniquet.
People feel that They can not express their true emotions
without the fear of people looking down on them and brand
them as being different. I think that it is best stated by
this quote: ^The dissenter is every human being at whose
moments of his life when he resigns momentarily from the
herd and thinks for himself.^ These are words that I can
live by.
