ChrisChat Indulges: Spotlight – Are people lemmings?


Or…alright already, I’ll write the dang post if that’s what it’ll take to get it out of my head.

I’ve started and deleted this post idea for a few months now. I originally gave up because, frankly, you can’t change people. They’re going to do what they want, when the want, and how they want, and still complain when others do it, too.

However, after another conversation about the never-ending saga of the neighbourhood garbage and those who just dump what/when/how they want and then complain when (a) others do it and (b) when they get caught doing it, I realized this post idea was never going away until I typed it all out. So here ya go.

The other aspect of this whole lemmings idea…following everyone else doing what they’re doing even if you know it’s nuts…is how it fits with politics.

Oyyy, I’m actually going to talk politics? Danger, danger, blah, blah, blah.

I’ve “watched” those people I thought were intelligent…meaning they were balanced thinkers…say and post the most, honestly, dumbass things. Yes, I’m reminded of that Saturday late night show and a certain character who love preaching…special something or other.

There’s no law that says you have to stick with the political party you lean with. There’s no law that says you have to always agree with them. There’s no law that dictates you have to follow your family’s political tradition…politics is not a tradition. Oh, and I’m stopping myself right now from channelling more of my dad because, well, circle arguments are a royal pain.

So, yes, the – are people lemmings – post is done. No, I don’t want to write anything about what’s good for the good is good for the gander…cause in these ideas, it’s not.
