    I am disappointed, why the focus on suicide? I get that society causes
    individuals to act in ways they might not have. These speakers on this
    channel do not meet the level of understanding I had hoped to gain. I
    listen to learn, here I learn little.

    He just cut to the chase.

  3. Tabatha Clapham says:

    This guy certainly never took a geography lesson. I was also a little
    disappointed that he didn’t mention Elias or go on to talk perhaps more
    about exclusion

  4. Dave Fischer says:

    interesting video

  5. Sandy Storey says:

    I thought this was amazing.

  6. Patrick Hamilton says:

    That isnt begging the question.

    this is very interest. how i understand some aspects of profesor N.C. ideas
    i can concluse that strenght of very influence people does not follow
    number of their conections but they influence is results of their position
    in social structure. In other words you can know only one import person and
    you can have strong impact to whole society.

    Italian politics

    no i was saying what i thought about this quote……. if euclid thinks the
    same than i understand how he comes to that conclusion 🙂

    Im not sure what you are trying to say 1. anti- whites don’t make what open
    up 2. what do you mean by open up 3. I don’t think anyone wants to turn any
    countries non-white, nobody gives a shit if there black or white

  11. molly Ring says:

    Japan is a very nice, rich country. Tens of millions of Africans would love
    to move there. But Anti-Whites don’t make them open up. If White people
    make the best countries, then why do we want to turn them non-White?

  12. Imagienes says:

    r u quoting Euclid?

  13. Imagienes says:

    Perhaps the Reason why white society is wealthier and more functional is
    because whites have a higher level of collectivity. White people suicides
    are almost always accompanied by suicide notes

  14. Imagienes says:

    White people have the best countries, why would anyone want to go anywhere
    else but a white country

  15. Marko Kraguljac says:

    Lecture which is *way more* interesting and exciting than its title.
    Still a bit shy about non-existence of free will but great otherwise.
    Highly recommended.

  16. Sam Vekemans says:

    More brainfood :)

  17. Sai Panyam says:

    A pretty slick presentation of major social networking concepts. He says
    social networks started on the African Savannah from primitive man, which
    if you think about it is damn right accurate. The structure that you are a
    part of influences your agency (free will) and what you end up doing at an
    individual level. Both Methodological Individualism and Methodological
    Holism are at play here.

  18. Jeremy Booth says:

    Is everyone “checked” by someone or is there one(s), who answer to no one?
    This can not be answered except by those possible ones who don’t have to.

    Watching this, I wonder what data went into its being positioned at the top
    of my recommendations from +YouTube …

    The talk I am watching this weekend…

    ***********************
    If You’re So Free, Why Do You Follow Others? The Sociological Science
    Behind Social Networks and Social Influence.

    Nicholas Christakis, Professor of Medical Sociology, Medicine, and
    Sociology at Harvard University

    If you think you’re in complete control of your destiny or even your own
    actions, you’re wrong. Every choice you make, every behavior you exhibit,
    and even every desire you have finds its roots in the social universe.
    Nicholas Christakis explains why individual actions are inextricably linked
    to sociological pressures; whether you’re absorbing altruism performed by
    someone you’ll never meet or deciding to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge,
    collective phenomena affect every aspect of your life. By the end of the
    lecture Christakis has revealed a startling new way to understand the world
    that ranks sociology as one of the most vitally important social sciences.

  22. Claire Conover says:

    a reasonable & detailed critique of society & social networks.

  23. Ant Droit says:

    If you think you’re in complete control of your destiny or even your own
    actions, you’re wrong

    I never knew how much I love sociology!!!! Long but worth it and yes,
    you’ll stay to end to see why I used social networks to share this! :)
