I tend to agree that playing by the "rules" of society is a major part of
evolving capably - and also that creating a dichotomy - or setting yourself
apart in
obstinance- is nonproductive.
However - I think his point is quite valid. Although we do not swim alone in
the tides of life, most of current "societies" today believe all kinds of
baloney, so one must have the GOAL of rational and reality based values
rather than the goal of socially correct ones.
Where the twain meets is another story.
