I lied, I have another blog I would like to do because my comments have inspired me to write another.
Society governs our every move, whether we like it or not. We do things because society accepts them as the best or better choice. Just like Alice when she believes the Mad Hatter is being rude. In Wonderland, he may not be rude, just inquisitive. We do not step out of line because of pressure forced on it by our society or peers. We do not break the status quo because we do not want sideways glances at us; we want conformity. There are some who want it more than others, and some who do not want it at all. These people are the shakers of society, but because we do not step out of line as a whole, society ignores these ‘radicals.’ Society prevents society form changing, how odd.
There are multiple people who try to change the world, but unless they have a large group supporting them, then their ideas never are carried out. What difference does one man by himself make? There needs to be support of his ideas, but without it, that person is a whisper in the wind. The Queen wants to behead her subjects, but no one supports her. She has no support, and therefore, as the king says, the beheading is never carried out.
Society has molded us. We go around everyday doing what we always do, but taking a sabbatical every now and again. We have no change, but society continues to do it. Society has molded us; never doing what we may want to do. Alice does not want to help the White Rabbit, but she does in order to not be rude. We “fit in” because we are afraid. Fear works with society’s conformity.
