The Wave

in chapter 2, what Laurie said about the nazis

: Laurie says about the Nazis who claimed that they were following orders, "They could have fought back. They had their own eyes and their own minds. They could think for themselves. Nobody would just follow an order like that". What does this tell us about Laurie's attitude to people? What her expectations?

Laurie thinks people should have the fortitude to think for themselves and be critical of things they are told to believe. This is why she questions the wave in the first place.
