A cult of personality arises when an individual uses mass media, propaganda, or other methods, to create an idealized, heroic, and, at times god-like public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise.

I see this at every sporting event, public address and parade in my town. Is it time to grow up as human beings and reject this? I believe we should question these paradigms in our society and begin to reject destructive institutions.

There are more of us than there are of them around the globe. Let us focus on advancing mankind and work together to rip down these barriers.

Ronald Regan once said: " Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall". The Berlin wall was more than brick and mortar. It was a symbol, an ideology, a paradigm that was getting in the way. In my opinion, we still have much work to do.

As said in the clip below "You don't have to follow me, only YOU can set YOU free"

Some will always follow

those who are in the public eye, and many of those who seem to "break free" fall right back into it over time. It's almost like trying to fill a bottomless pit of vice.

A Democrat may realize s/he's had the wool pulled over their eyes and decides to wake up...only to become a rabid FOX fan three months later. Or like those "non-conformists" who are so obsessed with being non-conformist that they simply become conformists of a different stripe.

The pigs on the farm becoming indistinguishable from the humans, he who fights monsters, yadda yadda

I'm only sad that I likely

Will not live to see the day when man gruel figures it out and realizes this path is hindering progress

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

There are always some who have figured it out

but historically, they've always been a small minority. That said, the internet has already proven to be an extremely useful tool in promoting liberty and individualism, so maybe you *will* see it.

I've come to the realization

We've been brainwashed with anthems and rituals

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.
