The only safety in a herd, school, or flock is that you’re with so many, you may not be the one eaten by predators. You only have to run, swim, or fly faster than the next slowest member. But the safety of the Maverick is in creating your own future, following your own path, creating our own meaning. You can avoid and outsmart the predators who will look for easier prey.
You can join other Mavericks without being a herd. Remember, wolf packs are among the best hunters anywhere.
