It is much easier to conform to what others do in society. Conformity needs belonging, acceptance, purpose....When injustices are inflicted in the name on of conformity, it is very hard for an individual to stand up against the general consensus. Similarly, in the wave, Laurie feels austrisized when she questions the wave. The alegory here is Nazi Germany when it was dangerous to stand against the Nazis.
