Conformity: What Constitutes Happiness?
I have found that even in the most individualistic societies that conformity inevitable. What's hard to figure out is wondering whether this a good thing or not. Living in an extremely individualistic society, The United States, I have found that while the government allows for the society to "be itself" on the larger scale, the smaller scale shows a divide in what is considered to be a Majority and a Minority of people. And on the even smaller scale, social groups are even divided. Someone is always left out, even in a society that promotes individualism. Now the question that arises out of this is, who is happier? The individualist, or the conformer? And which one is which?
