Fitting In

A good visual representation of what our overlords do to us 24/7.
Candid camera was an interesting program as this clip shows, but it delved a bit too much into personal embarrassment for my tastes.

thanx to Disinformation

People tend to defer to what the herd thinks.

But here’s the good news:
Adding a single dissenter – just one other person who gives the correct answer, or even an incorrect answer that’s different from the group’s incorrect answer – reduces conformity very sharply, down to 5-10%.

Why is this important? It means that one person who publicly speaks the truth can sway a group of people away from group-think.

"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in peoples minds." -Samuel Adams

Which leads me to comment again on Ron Paul. I watched his video summoning his supporters to the Tampa Republican convention. When is the convention anyway? No one ever gives the month. Is it June or July?

My take on his lack of response to his son's apparent defection is very wise. They both know that to maintain a growing opposition to the PTB would mean sure assassination. They are defusing the radical elements of the campaign, knowing that the mere show of genuine opposition will result in victory for "an Idea whose time has come."

Unfortunately, I have zero hope for change from within for the US. It will take a revolution from without with support from within to topple the dictators.
