Some of Us Don’t Fit In

The book, “The Crowd: A Study of The Popular Mind“, written in 1895. has already been referred to on this site.

Reading the book will educate one questioning (in order to know and understand) why it is that very few people will hear the individual when the individual steps away from the crowd. The choices  of escaping and remaining “outside the box” manifests with numerous results. One of the consequences for speaking out is the loss of friendships.

It is one thing to have knowledge but quite another to bring a member of the herd to an actual partaking of the truth. One will, at some point in their journey, ask themselves, “Why bother?”

The answer is…

Because, every once-in-a-while we will be the one who awakens a crowd follower well enough to where a choice is made to take the red pill.

Going along to get along is all around us. But… Some people stick out like a sore thumb on a hand with no fingers–what about you?

A pill so red it may be hard to swallow 🙁 :
