Hollow emptiness on the HollowayRoad.
by Pseud O'Nym
I was to going to write a post all about ’ The Bandwagon Effect’ and how, after the success of the Brexit Party at the recent European Elections, this phenomena might be witnessed in the Peterborough by-election results. According to wikipedia,
The bandwagon effect is a phenomenon whereby the rate of uptake of beliefs, ideas, fads and trends increases the more that they have already been adopted by others. In other words, the bandwagon effect is characterized by the probability of individual adoption increasing with respect to the proportion who have already done so. As more people come to believe in something, others also “hop on the bandwagon” regardless of the underlying evidence.
The bandwagon effect occurs in voting: some people vote for those candidates or parties who are likely to succeed (or are proclaimed as such by the media), hoping to be on the “winner’s side” in the end.
I was going to write about that. However, after a counseling session, my partner suggested we find a café and stop off for something to eat. It being a great, and a visit to a café indicated it was only going to get better. However, my mood was immediately plunged into thoughts of the utter pointlessness of continued human existence by a bookshop on the Holloway Road that boasted ‘we buy any porn’.
Given my thoughts about the overwhelming benefits of human extinction for the planet, this merely reinforced that view. It may not be popular, some people might find it to be this or it may be that, but to me it is undeniably a fact.
It just is.
