“Most people do not have a problem with you thinking for yourself, as long as your conclusions are the same as or at least compatible with their beliefs.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Ayn Rand
“A Conformist is a man who declares, "It's true because others believe it" - but an Individualist is NOT a man who declares, "It's true because I believe it."
An Individual declares, "I believe it because I see in reason that it is true.”
Ayn Rand, The Virtue of Selfishness: A New Concept of Egoism

J. Paul Getty
“The conformist is not born. He is made. I believe the brainwashing process begins in the schools and colleges.”
J. Paul Getty, How to Be Rich

Robert A. Heinlein
“Customs, morals—is there a difference? Woman, do you realize what you are doing? Here, by the grace of God and an inside straight, we have a personality untouched by the psychotic taboos of our tribe—and you want to turn him into a carbon copy of every fourth-rate conformist in this frightened land! Why don’t you go whole hog? Get him a brief case and make him carry it wherever he goes—make him feel shame if he doesn’t have it.”
Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land

Giorgio Gaber

من یک انسان نواَم،
آن¬قدر نو که دیرزمانی ست که دیگر فاشیست نیستم
من خیلی حساس و نوع دوستم و شرق¬شناس
قدیم¬ها طرفدار جنبش اعتراضی سال 68 بودم
و حالا مدت کوتاهی¬ست که طرفدار محیط زیست شده¬ام
چندسال قبل با خوشحالی هرچه تمام¬تر
احساس کردم مثل خیلی¬ها سوسیالیستم
من یک انسان نواَم!
لطف که کنم و بخواهم با زبان ادبی بگویم،
باید بگویم من یک ترقی¬خواهم
در عین حال طرفدار بازار آزاد و ضد نژادپرستی
من خیلی خوبم! من طرفدار حیواناتم
و دیگر اگزیستانسیالیست نیستم
اخیراً کمی خلاف جریان حرکت می¬کنم و فدرالیست

کانفورمیست کسی است که
معمولاً در جناح صحیح قرار گرفته!
او پاسخ¬های روشن و خوبی در سرش دارد
او بر عقاید متمرکز است
و زیر بغلش همیشه دو یا سه روزنامه دارد
وقتی به اندیشیدن نیاز دارد
اگر روشن¬تر بخواهم برایتان بگویم
درست مثل یک فرصت طلب فکر می¬کند
او خود را بی هیچ ضرورتی، وفق می¬دهد
و در بهشت خودش زندگی می¬کند

یک انسان کاملاً گرد و منعطف است
و بدون مقاومت حرکت می¬کند
در دریای اکثریت لیز می¬خورد و نرمش می¬کند
یک حیوان بسیار رایج است
که با کلماتِ گفتگوها زندگی می¬کند
شب¬ها رویا می¬بیند
و رویاهایش از خواب¬های رویابینان دیگر بیرون می¬آیند
و روز عید او زمانی است که
با همه جهان در آشتی باشد
و وقتی شنا می¬کند، راهش باز شود
او کانفورمیست است! کانفورمیست!

من یک انسان نواَم
و با زنان رابطه خارق¬العاده¬ای دارم؛ من فمینیستم
همیشه در دسترس و خوشبین؛ اروپایی¬ام
و هرگز صدایم را بلند نمی¬کنم؛ صلح طلبم
مارکسیست لنینیست بودم
بعدش نمی¬دانم چرا خودم را ناگهان یک کمونیست خداپرست یافتم!

کانفورمیست خوب نفهمیده که
حتی بهتر از یک توپ به هوا می¬پرد
یک بالن هوایی تکامل یافته است که از اطلاعات باد کرده
و گونه نادری است”
Giorgio Gaber

“Many marriages would have been laid to rest a long time ago, if they were not on a life-support machine called other people’s opinions and/or expectations.”

Criss Jami
“On the inside, the copycats of the ruffians are more delicate than the copycats of prudes.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

“I'm a Kashmiri ,
I live in a rogue place.
I'm surrounded by conformist ,
boot licking ,
people pleasing "herd"!

Safely cocooned in their stereotypical conformist lives,
maintaining status quo ,
they make generic responses
 expecting generic answers!

For someone with an alien mentality like 'mine' ,
I am an out cast ! 
But it's 'them' who are the eerie one ,
like the deadly malignant tumour
feeding on its own people , 
A parasite,
growing inside the  system!

Superficial faces ,
powdered with lies and deceit ; 
people ,
like controlled robots,
In love with their own ignorance !!”
BinYamin Gulzar

Criss Jami
“On a social level, secularism is safe. As literally the world's most fundamental conformist, the secularist wants to call himself a revolutionary all in the same. In most parts of the present world, rebellion against Christianity is not really much of a rebellion if one is to consider 'rebellion' something of a courageous sort or a bold act. Long ago Christ was crucified, and in some form or another, to this day, the scorn continues for 'little Christs'. The world hates Christians, and according to Christ, it is supposed to hate Christians. A true Christianity is a true rebellion; and for one to be 'freed from Christianity' is for one to religiously conform to the pressures of the rest of the world, for one to be freed from freedom.”
Criss Jami, Healology

“I am a hypocrite when it comes to being a conformist. My values and beliefs are part of my foundation of who I am. My frame work as you would say. But my life experiences are the bricks of the walls as I build my life and for that I am not a conformist I am a rebel.”
Bonnie Zackson Koury
