    why is it hard to fit in a domintly white area (small town) if you live your life your own way?

    Favorite Answer:

    If you're a free-thinker and not inclined to hide it, you either have to have a very thick skin, or you won't be comfortable in a small, tightly-knit community...no matter what country you're in or what continent you're on.

    People in small towns or communities tend to be more deeply vested in the social network of that place...the people they work with, the people they go to church with, the people they grew up with, the people who are part of the same status structure that they themselves are part of.  As a result, their thinking is much more tightly constrained by their desire to fit in and remain accepted (and by their fear of where they'd be if they were to be outcast or ostracized from that society).  So they are wary of anything and anyone that is thought to be a challenge to "the way we've always done things" or "the right & proper way of doing things".

    This isn't a white people thing, btw.  If you go to predominantly black communities, or predominantly Spanish-speaking, or predominantly Asian, you'll see exactly the same thing.  It has to do with the size of the community (fairly small) and the length of time the community has been in existence, and isn't related to the color of the people, or the community's location (as in urban or rural).

    I personally go my own way and make no attempt to explain it to those around me who try hard to be just like everyone else.  But it's easy for me because I don't need their approval or acceptance.  If they're close-minded or think I'm scandalous or a fool, that's fine with me.  I don't need them to be a certain way for me to respect and accept them as people.

    Is this a normal goal to have?

    So I have been fascinated with the idea of disappearing completely and resurfacing with a different identity in a different country. Now, I will make it clear that I do not owe money to any Mafia nor I am an ex hitman, I am a 23 year old uni student who is living with his parents. 

    However, upon graduating and getting a job these are my bucket list.

    1. Move out in to a new apartment.

    2. Change name.

    3. Work for 4 years and earn some decent money then move to a new country.(The final stage of the great vanishing act.)

    In a way I am inspired by Tommy Wiseau as upon migrating to USA no one new his past beside the fact that he is of European descent.

    I also want to experience the freedom of a man without a past, someone who can recreate his identity and not stick to the identity he is born with. 

    PS. I don't have much social life yet so I won't be missed much, also I do plan to keep in touch with my parents but be pretty much gone to everyone else.

    This normal lol?

    Are people more intelligent or do we only have greater knowledge?

    Favorite Answer:

    Interesting question.  I don't know.

    Part of the problem is there is no universally accepted definition for intelligence. Some might see improvements in human thinking, compared to centuries ago, as an increase in intelligence, while others might see it as applying knowledge about what we learned from the past.

    How to go back in time?

    I want to go back too see the era where people actually used flip phones with buttons, actually went outside, textbooks were the main thing in school. Unlike today, we have buttonless phones, socializing is absolutely ancient and we would all be stuck to a screen. I want to see the era where everything is more simple and less technical. If there is a way, then I'd do anything to go back to see how it was back before I was born.
