        He was a great poet, even though he was a communist. But many great French intellectuals in those times became entranced by communist ideas, unfortunately.

          ‘Ism’ is thought provoking.

          Why people get trapped in ‘isms’?

          Any specific reasons?

            Great question, dear friend.
            People are sociable creatures, and most of them fell uncomfortable being different from the crowd so they conform to majority opinion. There have been many studies to this effect. People also tend to label those majority opinions, to make it easier to identify themselves and others. Once they conform and identify themselves as part of this or that ‘ism, they must bridge a cognitive dissonance in their own brain by convincing themselves that they have made the right decision and now they truly believe in it.
            I used to say to my sons when they were teenagers: don’t be afraid to be different, be yourself, but remember – it’s very lonely on top. Most people abhor social loneliness.
