The problem is that we, humans, are too lazy to think for ourselves. It is much easier to let somebody else, a more charismatic person, think for us,
then we can just sit back, follow that person, and when we are wrong, we can always blame that person....
We want to be sheeple, it is too difficult to think for ourselves, and base our learning on experience. so if an 'esteemed leader' says a specific
group is bad, we say the same, without thinking about it.
I see so many parents discouraging their kids from asking "Why?", and I think that is such a huge failure. Instead of teaching our kids to have
enquiring minds, to question everything, we teach them to accept everything their 'superior teachers' say, instead of thinking for themselves. Only if
you are able to think for yourself, will you be able to question generalizations.
