Corrosion of Conformity

 “Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”  -JFK

   Conformity can be one of the most dangerous acts a person can partake in. While it is not an exclusively evil state, it can be attributed to some of the most despicable acts ever done. Naturally, the conformity of Nazis in Germany comes to mind. It is because of fear; fear of rejection and fear of safety, that causes such awful acts to occur. I am by no means implying that conformity is only for cowards and the wretched, but when observing worst possible scenarios, it does create a dark shadow. Humanity needs to focus more on individuality than group behavior. People care so much about their fear of being different that they deeply closet some of their most beautiful traits.
