40% of people are peer pressure susceptible
timestamp 5:26 an experiment showed that 40% of people will go along to get along
even when the answer provided is blatantly wrong.
how this translates to politics and morals is interesting. Just about everything shows
some influence by trend setters and so forth over the decades.
while you're worrying about not obeying but questioning authority, you might
take a look at not obeying but questioning the authority of the herd. St. Paul warns
against both imitating and against being different for its own sake. in the latter
category you get both at once - being counter culture by showing by some
clothing or whatever that you are "different" which involves imitating the style
that says all this.
