Most people are sheep, look and learn

    I don’t believe this is real. No way all those people just went along with it without asking what the hell everyone was doing this for. I know for a fact I’d be asking for a reasonable explanation why before I participated.

    It would be interesting to test for group thinking based on TV naritives. People like Simon and Wendy on TV one are little more than actors but they give scalding looks when the talk about Whale Oil and puppy eyed looks when they talk about illegal immigrants. I hear their story being retold , but I would love it if there was research to see if they also use the same words and facial expressions. TV is powerful, I’ve given up watching most of it, but it has incredible power to socialise many to their naritive.

    The other bit of socialisation that goes on is the Like Button. I wonder how many people have been influenced in what they say because of the positive reinforcement they receive by getting a large number of likes. If enough people engineered their use of the like button correctly, I have no doubt that the majority of people could be manipulated to come out with views that totally oppose the persons original view.

    The Like Button also is a form of socialization. I wonder how many people have been influenced in what they say because of the positive reinforcement they receive by getting a large number of likes.
