Why Following Others blindly

You are following (blindly or not) and DID you have willingly given up your responsibility to think and consider for yourself

Perhaps the greatest reason that people switch off their minds, is that they give away their responsibility to think to others, whether out of fear, laziness, conformance or profit.  The reality is this, if something is important, and your soul and its eternal destination is quite possibly the most important thing you can imagine, then you must take the responsibility to think deeply about what it is you are living by.  If you give that responsibility to someone else, that means that you trust that person or people with your eternal soul.  Is there anyone you trust that much?

And when it is said to them
 "Follow what Allah has revealed" they say, "Rather, we will follow that which we found our fathers doing." Even though their fathers did not think, nor were they guided?.....Qur’an 2:170
وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمُ اتَّبِعُوا مَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ قَالُوا بَلْ نَتَّبِعُ مَا أَلْفَيْنَا عَلَيْهِ آبَاءَنَا أَوَلَوْ كَانَ آبَاؤُهُمْ لَا يَعْقِلُونَ شَيْئًا وَلَا يَهْتَدُونَ

And similarly, We did not send before you any Warner into a city except that its affluent said "Indeed, we found our fathers upon a religion, and we are following in their footsteps.".........Qur’an 43:21-23
وَكَذَٰلِكَ مَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِكَ فِي قَرْيَةٍ مِّن نَّذِيرٍ إِلَّا قَالَ مُتْرَفُوهَا إِنَّا وَجَدْنَا آبَاءَنَا عَلَىٰ أُمَّةٍ وَإِنَّا عَلَىٰ آثَارِهِم مُّقْتَدُونَ

And when they committing evil, they say, "We found our fathers doing it, and Allah has ordered us to do it." Say, "Indeed, Allah does not order immorality. Do you say about Allah that which you do not know?".....Qur’an 7:28
وَإِذَا فَعَلُوا فَاحِشَةً قَالُوا وَجَدْنَا عَلَيْهَا آبَاءَنَا وَاللَّهُ أَمَرَنَا بِهَا قُلْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَأْمُرُ بِالْفَحْشَاءِ أَتَقُولُونَ عَلَى اللَّهِ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ

They (Jews and Christians) have taken their religious scholars and monks as lords besides Allah, and [also] the Messiah, the son of Mary. And they were not commanded except to worship one God; there is no deity except Him. Exalted is He above whatever they associate with Him...........Qur’an 9:31
اتَّخَذُوا أَحْبَارَهُمْ وَرُهْبَانَهُمْ أَرْبَابًا مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ وَالْمَسِيحَ ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ وَمَا أُمِرُوا إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُوا إِلَٰهًا وَاحِدًا لَّا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ سُبْحَانَهُ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ

There is no one in the heavens and earth but that he comes to the Most Merciful as a servant.He has enumerated them and counted them a [full] counting.
And all of them are coming to Him on the Day of Resurrection alone........Qur’an 19:93-95
إِن كُلُّ مَن فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ إِلَّا آتِي الرَّحْمَٰنِ عَبْدًا   
 لَّقَدْ أَحْصَاهُمْ وَعَدَّهُمْ عَدًّا
وَكُلُّهُمْ آتِيهِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فَرْداً

But when there comes the Deafening Blast
On the Day a man will flee from his brother
And his mother and his father
And his wife and his children
For every man, that Day, will be a matter to occupy him........Qur’an 80:33-37
فَإِذَا جَاءَتِ الصَّاخَّةُ
يَوْمَ يَفِرُّ الْمَرْءُ مِنْ أَخِيهِ
وَأُمِّهِ وَأَبِيهِ
وَصَاحِبَتِهِ وَبَنِيهِ
لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مِّنْهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ شَأْنٌ يُغْنِيهِ

You are following (blindly or not) and DID you have willingly given up your responsibility to think and consider for yourself.
Why we see blindly TV and Media and movies and follow all shown as blindly even a blind do not follow anyone :) But we people with eyes and all sense are so weak and easily get deceived by Media and people around.
In every part of the World same thing is happening around the clock and round the week and years and years. People getting away and away from the Message of God to them and more and more in love with the Life and things and luxurious.
If anyone will raise voice against Media or TV or Movies all gonna say *Are you mad or what*  What we will do or what we should or what we are suppose to do other than playing or shopping and eating or having fun and putting our effort for this life. We have to fulfill necessities first. but we need to understand the purpose. Unless we do not know the purpose of a thing or act we are doing it will not going to make any sense.

Human being can never stay happy with rules and system made by humans in any case. A human is a creation of God. God sent down the guidance to follow. God knows all we do not know and he given us all we need. All we need to have a firm faith on God and let the purpose of our living to take care others as all of us one way or other living for us or always around ourselves but Allah want us to live for others. And if we follow our media and rules made and doctrine for us by Media or people or falsehood. We will never gonna satisfied or will understand and realize. We have to break this ICE. and have to decide life the way our Creator want us to live. All World is obeying God without a question. Its only human who raise questions for anything. Follow the right path and Path chosen for human-being by God. Our all actions define our fate and our steps take us to the dream we want to achieve.

On the day of judgement you will be alone before your lord.  Your scholars and Imams, your lecturers and family and whoever else will not be there to answer for you, they will be busy answering for themselves.  Ask yourselves, have you studied and thought for the greatest test that is the day of Judgement.
