Conformity is the behavioural refuge of unadventurous spirits seeking comfort zones in which to perpetuate the predictable. It is tragedy disguised as a well-meaning friend. It stifles genuine exploration of all types in all areas and guarantees the complacency required by conservatism to effectively bar any meaningful and lasting change in social, political and cultural agendas. It is the true enemy of progress in the daily battle to broaden perspectives, develop understanding and improve the human condition.
