10% of people will always be heroes; 10% will be villains. The other 80% will wait to see what people around them are doing, and take their cues about what’s right and wrong from social norms.
“I’ve Got A Little List”
Yonatan Zunger

This is brilliant.

And there’s an important takeaway here for individuals — always strive to be in that 10% hero category. Once you really understand this, you’ll also understand that the time your actions really count is not the many times when you cooperated with the group for mundane things, but those few times when you go against others to protest injustice.
