The wicked rule, the righteous are suppressed
The wicked rule, the righteous are suppressed.
The bad man is admired and praised, the good man is ridiculed and scorned.
Foolishness and sham reign, wisdom is rejected.
Error rules, truth is rejected.
Why? No one is willing to think. It is too much trouble. People are followers. All prefer to just follow the crowd. No one really cares about Right and Truth. Everyone is only interested in popularity and acceptance by the crowd. All just want to be modern, up-to-date, in-fashion. So they pick not only their clothes but also their outlooks, attitudes and values in accordance with the latest fashion. They have no strong ideas of their own, no deep convictions, to regulate their behavior. And they are not willing to buck the crowd or go against convention. One concern is paramount: acceptance by others. Their behavior is dictated solely by concern over what impression they make on others, over what others might think. Appearance is of critical importance. Their ideas and opinions must be up to date. No one wants to be scorned or rejected. No one is willing to be different. As a result, desire for popularity and acceptance trumps all else. Truth and Right carry no weight.
A society programs its people into a particular set of assumptions and outlooks. Most people are unwilling to question their basic assumptions. It is too much work. People are creatures of convention. They follow what others do. They are not inclined to question and examine.
What lies underneath all this? Ego. Pride. Laziness. And an assumption. That assumption is: “If everyone is doing it, it must be OK. Everyone can’t be wrong. The consensus of the majority on a matter must be right.” The idea that the majority might be wrong is a concept that people have difficulty grasping.
