~ Yesterday at coffee the subject of conformity came up,
“Kenneth, have you ever thought about how ridiculous it is that as school-children we were taught to stand in line at recess and we wouldn’t be let back into the school building until every child was standing still in line? Doesn’t that seem a bit strange?”
While I’m sure there is some logic behind the organization of fifty school children and making them all stand still in line; ultimately it seems as though it is nothing more than another symptom of Western Culture attempting to teach children conformity and absolute obedience to governing authorities.
This past week in the United States there’s been a massive amount of protesting in the St. Louis area due to an incidence in which a police officer shot and killed an unarmed citizen. According to various NEWS reports, the police chief, in an effort to ‘defend the peace’ of St. Louis issued a mandatory curfew on the citizens of the community. A mandatory curfew on American adults? Really???
Since when did it become illegal in the United States to protest? Since when did it become illegal as an adult in the United States to step outside of your house in the evening and walk down a public sidewalk?
