Default Re: people who are different for the sake of being different

There will always be rebels who believe that the whole system needs to change. There is nothing wrong with rejecting every traditionally held view - if no one did this then we would not advance in anything would we?

It is natural to rebel and reject traditional beliefs, but it is also natural for humans to "group together". This is how you get the crowds of which you speak. It isn't detrimental to the human race as a whole and encourages revoluntionary thinking.

Davinci was hundreds of years before his time and reject so many "traditional" views that he was regarded as mad. Yet, hundreds of years after he passed away, we appreciate and accept his theories/inventions as factual and as great advances in science. Einstein was also regarded as mad due to some revolutionary and challenging views he possessed.
