‘190 persons in a group of 200 persons follow the informed 10 individuals in material world’. The Prof stated.

He is talking bunkum.

——-

Next day the class took part in an experiment where volunteers were told to randomly walk around a large hall without talking to each other.  Just 5% were instructed – where to walk and the class followed them like a herd. Most were unaware that they were following someone.

The results were shared with the class and they were asked to submit a paper proving that elections are not bunkum in democratic system of governance.

  1. Makes you stop and think. Unfortunately, sometimes none of the candidates seem worthy of a leadership job. I don’t like crowds and avoid them whenever possible. Good writing, Yarnspinnerr. 🙂 — Suzanne

  2. In essence this is true of life.

    Some years ago I was listening to a report on a BBC news programme on the eve of a General Election in UK. An old chap (well, he sounded oldish) was being interviewed and when asked how he proposed voting said; ” Well, My grandfather always voted Labour, my father always voted Labour, and I’ve always voted Labour. So there you are…there’s your answer.”

    A clear case of follow my lead I think.

I love arguments
