"In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king" is a false proverb. People who think critically, offer new perspectives, or re-examine popularly held beliefs are not treated like kings. The more they search, the lonelier they feel. The more they shout, the more they hear their own echoes. And the more they question and explore, the more they realize that their journey is not the enlightening quest they thought it would be. Instead, it turns out to be an awkward endeavor that burdens them with questions that they aren't even sure how to ask.
Are they kings? No. Not at all. They are normal humans with more questions than answers.
