The power of the collective system

The power of the collective system

As you may have seen in a large assembly, a person does not need to exert any force to move in the direction that the whole assembly is going, but he automatically moves in the same direction with the force of the assembly. If one wants to walk in the opposite direction, he can barely walk one and a half steps even with a lot of effort, and as many steps as he walks, a single wave of the assembly pushes him back many times. In the same way, when the collective system, led by unrighteous people, follows the path of disbelief and immorality, it becomes so easy for individuals and groups to follow the wrong path that they are forced to follow it. Not required. But if they want to go against it, even after exerting all their body and soul, they can only take one and a half steps on the right path and the collective spirit, despite their resistance, pushes them back for miles.
