yes interesting...

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Hope! You've got the same dragon as me. What did you name yours? My red one is Iris.

We're not conformist, because most of the dragons are different.

Ooh. Going into debate mode!

Sometimes being conformist is a good thing. Think of Martin Luther King Jr., for example. If people hadn't decided to do what he was doing, to yes, CONFORM to his ideals of a non-racist society, where might we be today? Power in numbers and all that; and there might not have been numbers that protested segregation had people not agreed, conformed, accepted, etc., his crusade for a racism-free country.

But anyway, that's a rather extreme example.

Taht's not conformity, that's non-conformity. They joined together to fight conformity. Doing the same thing as everyone else is only conformity if you aree joining together for the sole purpose of being the same.
