We humans are a strange race. We like to belong. We like to feel we have a purpose. It seems that we will do anything rather than think for ourselves.
While browsing around for Christmas presents in Snoopers Paradise this afternoon I cam across this photograph. If the photo had showed the Queen of England inspecting a regiment of thousands of men perhaps I would not have noticed it. I think it caught my eye for it’s absurdity.
Suppose that this handful of individuals were the only people in the world. Would any of them behave in such an absurd fashion? How would they decide which of them were to line up and which to inspect? I guess it is society that has laid down the rules for these people and I guess it is society that lays down the rules for all of us.
