Don't be a puppet. According to Goolge, a puppet (n) is defined as:
"a person, party, or state under the control of another person, group, or power."
Watch out for master puppeteers. A master pupeteer's goal is that without you fully knowing, they get you to do something that you wouldn't normally do on your own. Be on the lookout and run the other direction. Be aware and be wise. After all, it's the right thing to do and it models the way for others.
