On Confusing the Herd Mentality with Rational Thought

“We all do no end of feeling, and we mistake it for thinking. And out of it we get an aggregation which we consider a boon. Its name is public opinion. It is held in reverence. Some think it the voice of God.”
Mark Twain

Oh, how good it feels to be part of the crowd. Just don’t stop to think about it for too long, lest a tiny bit of rational thought creep in and begin to question the authenticity of our common reverence.
