"I'm as non comforming as can be, you'd be non conforming too if you looked just like me!" bah, i hate the whole conforming thing, what i hate more is the anti conforming ideal that goes around, which ironically ends up as conforming in itself. You know the whole "i shall hate this because it's popular and i shall be non conforming by hating and avoiding anything popular" and then you get millions of other emo/indie/goth/whatever type of people doing exactly the same thing for no real reason stating they are non conforming. Why can't people just enjoy what they enjoy damnit, i mean sure i get a little agitated at what's popular but usually it has a decent reason as to why it's popular. BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE IT DAMNIT! i mean screw those people that go "wow this is popular, derp, i shall like it because it's sooooo in right now, derp" people need to develop a sense of individuality and free thought. This can only be done by forgetting what everyone else thinks of you and doing what you want, when you want (providing it doesn't hurt anyone else or break the law etc) and think and say what you want.
I know exactly what you mean! People try not to conform but they eventually do. I think the weak rebel and conform against the conformists, if that makes any sense. You like what you like, people should just accept it and be true to themselves!
yeah i know right, and also i don't like how people bicker on about stupid things like the avatar movie, it seems to have two sides, people that loved it and want everyone to see it and the people who hate it just because it has a huge hype. I mean i loved it, but i don't go all nuts and act like a zealot trying to convince others to see it, nor do I go around paying out things i don't like and say everyone that likes it is pathetic. I just think that people should kinda keep opinions to themselves.. well that's not really it, what i'm trying to say is that people should not regard their opinions so highly, they shouldn't expect that their opinion will be good or right, and they should expect some people to have different opinions, and just because they do doesn't mean that their opinion is wrong or worse than theirs you know?
as much i can undertand with my english knowledge .. and i can only speak for myself .. i find answers in philosophical books for the conformity theme. and i have to interpose .. the question is not new .. as we know from the cynics the had much more time to go into discusion like we have today btw. maybe you find answers in writings from "diogenes f. sinope" as way a of book recommendation
