Can ideologies become harmful?
Yes. If you do not understand your ideology and instead you chose to accept it at face value, never challenging it, or searching for weaknesses, and only follow it blindly, are you not a lemming? Does the value of your life, then, somehow decrease? We are each individuals with unique perspectives on life. We have our own voices. Our own thoughts. As a result, we have diverse ideas and concepts to contribute to our world. And doesn’t your voice become muted when you blindly accept the values of another?
