    That somewhat makes sense, at least more sense than the old Messiah chorus:
    "We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way"

    But what if we're led to think like the minority is the majority, like those fish who prefer blue?

    And unfortunately, our elected officials don't think like the majority, e.g. on gay marriage and stem cell research.
