“In ordinary language: as a result of the pressure of the crowd, most people lead lives that are inauthentic and irresponsible. The “they” watches over “everything exceptional that thrusts itself to the fore. Every kind of priority gets noiselessly suppressed.” There is a general “levelling down,” a socially enforced “averageness,” in which everything authentic “gets glossed over as something that has long been well known.”
