For those of us old enough to have experienced authoritative figures over us; to have seen the results of, “following orders” whether personally, witnessed, or viewed in so many of the war movies that depict soldiers repeating the same line of, “I was just following orders“, but now there are many who have died just because someone didn’t have the bravery to say, “this is wrong.”
Well, those days have not just magically disappeared. If you think they have, just take a look at the world we currently live in – if you’re not experiencing it, or have someone close to you that is experiencing it, you can’t miss it in the news. Police and soldiers world-wide are still “following orders” and many innocent people are suffering because of it, and most of us are doing – nothing. Is this your idea of… obedience?
