Debate: what is conformist?
« on: May 16, 2010, 12:40:36 AM »

I say yes, because someone buys something at a store then sells it to someone else through amazon.

But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great

Amazon is not really conformist because often they have one copy of something, so if you buy it, it's not like they are going to industrialize production of it.

What does it matter if it works?
Most everyone uses pencils to write, does that make pencils conformist?
