What is the difference between blind followers and Robots?
the difference is Choice
Robots have no choice Blind followers do.
True robots have been conditioned to accept that they can only do what they are told to do; they are programmed. They are raised with virtual blinders that only allow them to see a certain way and they are conditioned by discipline that they can only react in a given fashion. They, in effect, can do nothing else. If presented with a set circumstance they will always react the same. If the circumstance falls outside of their training they will do nothing.
A blind follower has the option of seeing other ways and concepts but chooses not to. They only see what they allow themselves to see. Or, more often, they see and choose not to stray from the path that they have chosen to follow. The key word is "choice"! A blind follower isn't any more blind than others but they choose not to see.
