8 February 2006 - bandwagon effect 2
< yesterday --
Actually, the bandwagon effect evolved to promote coordinated
community enterprise. When a critical issue requires concerted
action, a fad sweeps through the population, and everyone
simultaneously knows what the new black is (repression), or
what nation to blame for the Enlightenment (Denmark).
Meanwhile, comparatively insubstantial botherations meet the
full individuality treatment, so there’s no need to work
together to choose the next DVD standard.
