Too many want others to lead discourse. Too many are unwilling to put forth their own experiences to add to the knowledge of the larger body. Often, engaged in hero-worship, they willfully remain silent while proclaiming their leader as worthy to speak for all. This is especially true in the world of mental illness and especially with antisocial personalities.
Everyone has their favorite resource, be it myself, M.E. Thomas, or any number of other voices in the realm of mental illness. They hang on their every word and they elevate the thoughts of their champion to a level reaching insanity. For the psychopath, this is especially foolish and dangerous given our weak sense of identities and our chameleon-like abilities. Rather than thinking for ourselves, too many release their thoughts to pay the ransom demanded by the hero in question. They become what they read and lose sight of the questions they originally held in their quest for knowledge.
