Hate him~ He's just like one of those wanna-be leaders to tries to lead people away from or into something. His opinion is God does not exist. Period~

I take it I am going to have to explain to you what it is about.

Do you feel joy or like you belong wen you join a group.. Do you have a mob mentality. Does it make you happy to be in a large group doing whatever it is there doing. That was the question.. Yes or No and why?

i didn't want to watch the video cuz of that guy who made the video. & being part of a mob is not something I like to do in my spare time, unless it was for something really important, not what's distributed in that video.

Sad but true. Some people follow just because a group of people do things.

No, because I hate crowds and groups, they're annoying.
Besides, why would I want to do what everyone else is doing?
I don't want to belong.

Here are my thoughs on a mob mentality. It's important. It doesnt matter if its "illogical","unrational", and ne other fancy word with no true meaning.
Whenever you have a group of people that you need to work together, they must strive for a common goal.And they have to want that common goal for what ever reason. It doesnt matter what group it is (scientists, soldiers, americans, martial artists, ect.) Mob mentality is important for getting anything done. Its the only way to get things done on a large scale. Society wouldnt hold up without it.

The issue with all these "non comformist", "free thinkers", "new age hippies" ect. Is that they believe they are somewhat different, serperior, better, smarter, ect then everybody else.But all they r doing is following a different path, nothing more. One path isnt ne more special or better then the other one.All paths have thier cons and pros.The world as we know it couldnt survive with one less of any of these paths.

And u dont have to understand these "feelings" on some emotional level, it isnt required for everyone. It is niether an advantage or handicap-but rather a necessity. This is a phenominom throught nature, animals do it to. If it is a pattern throughout nature, it must be natural. And if it is natural it must be "logical". At the end of the day it comes down to whether or not you surrender to that feeling. Its like falling in love, not rationlized, but "falling". and dont the best things in life come like that?When u get into a fight, have sex, kill someone out of passion, rape someone, shoot someone, ect. Its that feeling of passion and surrender...and most of us will go through something like these events in our life time. Its nothing to be ashamed of- its called being human...which is something u should be ashamed of...becuase humans r shameful creatures ...peace over war
