Seniority has nothing to do with intellectuality, your individuality wins the majority or minority, simply because you maintained the status quo of your peculiarity.
Misguided good men are more dangerous than honest bad men. It is because they are seen as good that, in and by good conscience, the mob will always, stubbornly back them without question.
A superior intellect & sensitive person is not often as comfortable and confident in public as the mediocre minds and/or bumptious people because he thoroughly knows that some will hate his understanding points sheer out of their jealousy, and others particularly duffers’ will discuss and debate about his points mere out of their level of understanding to put the basics out of context.
Not always majority are correct sometimes it goes with a lack of understanding
Even if a person unravels everything before everyone to say the real facts: ‘This is This’ & ‘That is That’, the probability is very high is that the majority of people may say ‘This is That’ & ‘That is This’.
As for the majority, it is not so much race as it is political affiliation that really divides it today. What was once an issue of physical difference is now one of intellectual difference. Men have yet to master disagreeing without flashing all their frustrations that come with it; the conservative will throw half-truths while the liberal will throw insults. Combine these and what do you get? A dishonest mockery of a country.
When the term Christian or even Protestant is used, it seldom refers to any particularly evangelical doctrine or way of life.

One person should never decide what happens to the majority.
Although we may face untold numbers that by their sheer mass appear to render us as little more than a speck in the face of them, a single person standing with God amidst any mass will always be an indomitable majority.
The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widely spread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.
