On Conformity

Sometimes it hits you, as did the article I reposted a couple of minutes ago.

There are so many people who advocate for conformity and they do it with the best of intentions. Why shouldn’t the United States use the Celcius Scale or the metric system? Every other country in the world is on board with these systems. What is wrong with us?

I’m not disputing the arguments for adopting those system. I’m disputing the notion that conformity is good. It’s not! If everybody else is doing it, you should probably ask why and if maybe you should stop, go another way, avoid the unseen cliff the rest of society is rushing over.
