CONFORMITY CAN GET US ALL KILLED: Stella Morabito, writing in The Federalist, offers this bracing suggestion:

“Sure, a certain level of conformity is normal for a society to function. But an unchecked conformity impulse in a technological society like ours acts more like slow-motion suicide than a survival mechanism. We think we’re saving ourselves by conforming, but in the long run the opposite is true.”

Helps explain the high level of American conformity with, for example, mask mandates that clearly aren’t effective at preventing the spread of COVID-19. May also say something about why Wokeism is so difficult to resist for so many people. And perhaps even why this kind of mindless savagery is becoming such a commonplace on American campuses.
