The abstract concept of what is right or wrong is determined by the majority in the first place.
Most people are like headless chickens. If you are bit more advanced than that and actually use your head, you will be minority. Sometimes pretty miserable, because they won't let you otherwise. They will never exit for their little box, they will blindly follow their little dogmas and axioms just because they were told to do so. They will never try to re-evaluate their believings, and at the same time, they will try to deprive you from what is sacred to you. They are totally inflexible...
Never underestimate the destructing power of stupid people in large numbers, my friend.
That's why I like RHP forums so much... People interested in chess or verbal debates, changing of thoughts, often happen to be smart and entitled to their opinions. So since typical RHP poster is typically more indipendent, articulated thinker than average Joe, I enjoy to be part of this site even when I wholeheartly disagree with someone.
