Be careful of the masses

Be careful of the masses 1

I would highly recommend that you never blindly follow anyone. Putting your faith in another person, without first knowing for sure that the person can be trusted, is like betting your house on a single roll of the roulette wheel. Not smart!

Henrik Ibsen stated, “The majority is always wrong.” Following the masses, just because you think that they must be right because so many people could not be wrong, is a huge mistake. Remember, the masses are just one letter away from being the asses.

Instead of following the majority, start thinking for yourself. The lazy follow the majority because they do not want to be bothered with the facts. The wise think for themselves and follow their own heart, regardless of what anyone else does.

    Interesting photo/saying Martha. My mother would say “if everyone else jumps off a bridge, do you have to follow? You must have a mind of your own.” Good words to live by.
