    Are we done with the days where everyone has their own personality ?
    Are we done with the days where people did things and acted in ways they wanted to?

    Society is a sheep majority - i.e people following a crowd even though the cause they are following doesn't interest them, but they do it just for social reputation. People doing things to fit in even if they don't enjoy what it is. People getting a typical university degree even though they want to do something completely different. People saying they are for or against certain movements just because others around them are.

    Another example is on TSR too, many people going to uni these days , then posting on TSR saying "I don't really like clubbing but im going to make friends and still haven't made any, i hate life" You're not going to make friends at a location that doesn't interest you, and why the hell should you hate your life. Rep scavengers looking for those green gems or upvotes on reddit or followers on twitter and isntagram, admiring them like it's something important. Or just sticking up for a certain cause just because it's what the majority supposedly believe in.

    There is something called environmental, social and cultural influence, but it never has been as personality erasing as in today's world

    Holy sh1t why is everyone living their life under a bubble of social acceptance?

    Peace late.

    Well some people are programmed to be sheep, while others are programmed to be innovators, not everyone is made to follow their own set path, some follow the pied piper blindly and are comfortable doing so.

    I've seen this before but I just love how perfectly it captures pseudo-intellectualism and egotism in society
