its crazy how we call ourselves independent today..
crazy because people still do what they are told-betraying years of education in an empowering environment,people forget they have a mind.
rubbishing all things we learn,we still love to be governed because we know that the world we live in-in the quietest corners of our heart is just in our heads...
in the real world,there is no holden caulfield really.
he never became independent of the trappings of the printed word bound by dog eared covers.

Perhaps that's why so many would rather be living within themselves?

In the grand scheme of ideas,it is the same "conventional wisdom" that you so heartily despise,which has honed your fibers to even come up with the idea of abhorring it...

@AJ: i dont despise the wisdom i have grown up with...infact,i have problems with people who dont use it the right way and let other people's wisdom guide them!
