"Let us line up and conform to everything demanded of us. Let us be conforming sheep and do what we are told. Let us conform to idealism and not think for ourselves. Let us conform to the wishes of power control freaks, and do their bidding, post haste." Really.
|If a Nonconformist Marble can lead the way...|
I don't think so. I would rather be a nonconformist. Let us use the brains we were allotted instead.Shall we lead instead of follow? Shall we create instead of imitate? Yes! You, too, can be a nonconformist. How cool is that?
Conformity to the enormity of normal may be a good thing at times, but may be excessive repression and suppression of expression by the open mind at other times.
Creativity can be stifled, even destroyed if 'normal' --the strict regimen and interpretation of life-- is followed religiously without fail-- as is often required of us.
Nonconformity is open-mindedness, creative, and daring. Nonconformity is to be able to think for ones' self. To be a nonconformist can be bold. Exciting. You get the idea.
At Incoming Bytes, we must admit the normal thing to do is to stop at a red light. To be honest, doing otherwise is unwise, even foolish. The eighteen-wheeler barreling through the intersection the other direction proves 'normal' can be a good thing. Upon occasion.
May it be reasonably concluded that being normal is required? Rarely.
It is simply more fun to be a nonconformist.
Is that incoming I hear?
