When it comes to deciding what’s best for us (individually and collectively), will we blindly follow the opinions of celebrities, celebutants, overpaid athletes, and spokesmen and women who live lives far removed from our lives, or will we think for ourselves, do the research, and use intelligence and reason to decide what’s best for us? Are we intelligent beings, capable of self-determination, or are we simply sheep, requiring someone else to tell us what to do and what to think? After all, who is better at deciding what’s best for us: we ourselves, or others with agendas that are unknown to us?
I, for one, believe that I am fully capable of deciding for myself what’s in my best interest. I neither need, nor will I accept, anyone trying to tell me what to think or what to do.
