The Power and Danger of Groupthink


 One picture can say so very much.  An original thinker vs Groupthink.  

Unfortunately, modern technology has brought us a new era of Groupthinkers.  I have been dealing with it for years.  This mind numb phenomenon is also called, The Echo Chamber.   The high tech internet based tech firms are full of it.  They see this as a good thing. Evan as a virtue.  How dare anyone stand up to the vast majority of our high tech monopoly!  

The most obvious reason for me to oppose them is that simply put, I don't fit in with them.  I never have, nor will I ever.  As a child of God, I was made to be an original.  

I used to refer to myself as an idea man.  I had a lot of great ideas.  I still do.  There are of course many challenges to being that way.  One is, how does one implement this into something real?  Second is, how do I present this to others in order to gain interest?  



Better ideas don't automatically mean people will like it.  The cavemen like their square wheels because that is what they are familiar with.  "We've always done it that way!" mentality.  Because of that, they have to work twice as hard to to do the same job like pulling a cart.  In the mind of the simple minded majority, this is normal.  They say they're too busy to improve.  

What these pictures don't show is the nearly invisible ruling elite.  They are the ones who often set the standards for the rest of the world to follow.  So unless Big Brother tells them to change or improve something, it never happens.  



Now is the time for real change!  We can do it from the ground up!  It takes the power of like minded original out-of-the box thinkers to start talking to each other first.
