Popularity and unpopularity don’t matter

Just a short piece of wisdom from me.

Don’t do something just because it’s popular, and don’t do something because it’s unpopular either. Don’t put something down because it’s unpopular, and don’t embrace something just because it’s not popular or mainstream either. Don’t dislike something just because everyone likes it. Don’t like something just because everyone dislikes it. Don’t like something just because everyone likes it. Don’t dislike something just because everyone else dislikes it. If you base what you like and do on whether something is popular or unpopular, rather than on your genuine affinity towards something, it has no meaning.

Hope you take this to heart.

    • Why thanks. I thought of it after my brother expressed skepticism towards the Pussy Riot thing. His reason: it’s all over the internet. I’m not following any trends, but I think Pussy Riot are making a statement and defending their free speech (and free speech in general) is important. I criticize how someone can distrust that just because the Internet’s all over it.
