Thousands of years ago it was in a human’s best interest to fit in as best as possible. You didn’t want to provoke your community and you certainly did not want to upset the status quo. Not even if what you had to say was helpful.

Life was about survival, not risk and this way of thinking has been passed down through the generations like a cursed heirloom.
