"What do you want for breakfast?"
"A hot dog."
"Because that's the way it is..."
In my social problems class my teacher was talking about social norms. She was saying that one morning she didn't want to deal with what to make for breakfast. Then she had this conversation with her eight year old son.
So the question is, why do we do the things we do?
Are all of your decisions your own?
Or are they dictated by the practices of modern society?
Now think about that the next time you eat lunch at a table rather then on the floor.
