It probably will be dangerous i guess..?? Like everyone wants to do different things and consider stuff as normal. So everyone would do their own things. But if everyone will be transcendentalist world might be more modern and just a better place if there are not much crazy people. People that follow their instincts will develop different technologies and actually finish them without giving up, that probably will help country.
I honestly think it would be a peaceful society. If everyone was a transcendentalist there would be less bullying/excluding, less of fights between friends and less conflicts around the world. I personally believe that not being a transcendentalist just ruins us as a human being. If we were to be transcendentalists we would live in peace and would be a diverse world. I admire the transcendentalists, I admire them so much. its a shame I dont have the guts to be one...
I think if transcendentalism was normal then there would be no correct law and order. People would be able to do whatever they wanted and prevent being punished. The world would be chaotic place to live in. One thing that is interesting though is the fact that not being a transcendentalist would be transcendentalism in that world.

Well, to be honest with you, I think the world will be in chaos, everybody expressing themselves, following their instincts, not the law or the order. I believe that some balance in thought must be establish to form a base, and therefore the society benefits more.

Being a transcendentalist is becoming out of ordinary, right? When everyone is out of ordinary, I think that "being not normal" would be normal. Wait... that doesn't make sense. Anyways, what I think would happen is the definition of what is normal and what is not normal would change, and transcendentalism would be normal for everyone.

Um, I actually think that a world where everyone is a transcendentalist would be kind of impossible. I mean, I'm sure everyone would love to do what they want to do, but couldn't because of society, but first we need to get rid of people's judgement, which would be impossible. And like some people have said, wouldn't a society where everyone was a transcendentalist be sort of a dystopia?
What if there are people that really really want to murder someone but can't because of society? Or a person who was really into rape and harassment but couldn't because of society? I think the norms established by society are still needed in this world. So no 'all-transcendentalist' world for me. /:
If everyone was a transcendentalist, the world would be full of conflicts, because everyone would have different ideas, since they would follow their own instinct, not the society. People would start doing whatever they want to do. It would be a chaos.
i think that if the world was full of transcendenalists it would like not be unique because everyone is doing that. Like esther said if everyone becomes transcendentalists then that would be like normal for everyone.
if it's so, i think we cant do same thing together because i think we all have different ideas or desires. even if there is one who has same idea what you want to do somewhere in the world, to find that guy is really hard. so if everyone would be transcendentalist, this world would be lonely... but if it'd be normal for them, they would not feel lonely or something like that maybe...? haha i dont know. but i live in the world that someone always cares about someone. so for me such a world looks sad. and i feel lonely
