I am still forming my thoughts around this issue and will no doubt think differently on the subject in time.

What I mean by being authentic can be expressed in a single question. Are people’s beliefs and actions sincere or are they buckling under peer-pressure, uncritically assuming labels and roles, following fads and trends, or avoiding their fears and responsibilities?

I hope that clears up some things.

Thanks.
