    Have being too social , has that compromised our individual expression ?

    This is for the younger crowd

    Can you express your thinking , freely ?

    Or does the crowd thinking , dominate ?

    How is anyone able to discern the extent to which their own thinking is influenced?

    Jeeves asked the very question I was about to.

    Part of the problem is that there are pitfalls at either end of the spectrum. Too little socializing and one is trapped in one's own ideas, which, having insufficient external stimuli, will tend to stagnate.

    I read an analogy recently, being social is like river rocks rubbing together, smoothing out all the rough edges.

    All of our expression is comprimised by others in one way or anuther whether by a crowd or an individual... ether of which at any given time could apear to have the strongest influence on us... an i dont thank an increase in social lifestyle causes any less freedom of expression.!!!
