‘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
