People are not blind. They just chose not to see.
People would rather follow orders blindly than open their eyes and follow their own paths. People would rather go to a war they don’t even approve of than think independently. Because making decisions seems insecure and stressful, people prefer being told what to do. People would sacrifice freedom for security, which is just an illusion. Ironically, people would obey authorities and risk their own lives just to acquire the “feeling” of safety. You can’t rely on others and expect them to protect you, to solve problems for you. You have to grow your own strength and open your eyes, instead of being led blindly and asking for help. You’ve got to take off the blindfold before finding yourself are walking in the water way too deep.
