I recently found a few things stating “The Majority Is Always Wrong.”
A classic case of this was The Poor old Dixie Chicks who were vilified for their comments on The Iraq War. Fortunately they were able to process their anger creatively and produced a great song
History has proven them to have been right. As we still suffer the consequences of the decisions made back then.
I understand people needing a way to process feelings, only too well
Bill Maher lost his show and endured similar treatment for a few off the cuff remarks about 9/11. History now views him in a different light too. Yet it is sad to see him forgetting his own treatment and jumping on a few popular bandwagons ĺately. Whatever his remarks at the time, at least he didn’t view it as an economic opportunity. Yet nothing has ever been said about those kind of comments.
It is probably unwise to join in popular causes or games. If I find I am agreeing with the majority, I recognise I am probably wrong.
