The boat of your life lies within your absolute and all-out authority; however, you might be rightly or wrongly steered by your surrounding, society or your born-with nature.To me, in this human world, there are only two kinds of human being: simple and noted man. This article aspires to show you the differences between simple and noted man.
Drawing from historical, philosophical and social perspectives, "Simple Man" is referred to those whose mental health is easily steered by the majority. This majority refers to his or her family, peers, society and the world. I am not saying that what the majority think or act is right or wrong, but I just want to reveal that for "Simple Man", everything becomes good in the present and future, if that everything is accepted by the majority.
Have you ever wondered why a huge number of youth like to do the things that are unacceptable by their family and society? One of the answers that I can find is that: their peers think it is good and acceptable and this majority smooth their path to such the thought and commission that you and I think it is wrong.So to be simplistic, "Simple Man" is referred to those who are easily steered by the majority. No matter they used to think that their prospective commission was wrong, but now it becomes right because of only one reason "accepted by the majority.".But "Noted Man" has an absolute different personality. Majority, family, society, the world or peer are not the factors to make anything right, but only the genuine reason or reasons that make any prospective act or thought of him or her right or acceptable.
Majority is not the decision-maker for the term right or wrong, good or bad.Lay Vicheka's quotes on humanity: "Majority is the prime livelihood law for Simple Man, but only reason is the prime livelihood law for Noted Man."
