Shaping our Thoughts
Community plays a crucial role in shaping our thoughts and actions. As we have seen in the Vaccine, Conspiracy, and Cult sections of this module, that role can be nocuous as far as the health (mental and physical) of the members of the community at large is concerned. Using the subject matter from this module in a coherent and selective manner, compose a four page minimum MLA formatted essay that describes the power of community over the individual’s beliefs and behaviors. Discuss how that power is used and how beliefs are spread. We have obviously been exploring the more dangerous aspects of community influence, so feel free to be critical of the power of community over individuals, but in your analysis try to reflect on possible solutions to detrimental communal influence.
