Human's have a problem with using "self-hypnosis" to justify their lives and actions....it's called being a "true believer". It makes it easy on the mind to become a "true believer", because you no longer have to consider all the "myriad consequences and responsibilities of your path".

Look at the "cult of Jesus" or any "guru cult". They work by proclaiming that the followers are "absolved of all responsibility", which has been assumed by the guru.

Also, alot of people just need to feel like they "belong", so they seek out and join movements.

Do a google search for "true believer", and you will find alot of psychological research on why people do this.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
