Intellectual Laziness

"Many people welcome authority because they have little confidence in themselves or are intellectually lazy: to accept the word of someone else is to take the easy way of gaining comfort and assurance. [...] Such conformist tendencies in human beings create fertile soil for modern high-pressure advertising and propaganda." -Titus/Smith

How can we stay away from intellectual laziness? If you want control over your intellect, you need to feel like you're in control of your life. Otherwise, you're a slave to your way of thinking and are influence by which ever voice is the loudest.
