Are we independent thinkers or can we be corralled into thinking and acting in accordance with the dictates of society. The question we need to ask ourselves anytime a proposition is put to us is: “Does my co-opting serve my best interest”? And the question you need to ask of those who are trying to influence our decision is: “What do you gain by my acquiescence to your request”? Remember people can be calculated and defiant when all they think of is their self interest.
