More BORG thinking and rationalization. It’s not elites vs. populists. It’s cities vs. the countryside.
“In the low-density and underdeveloped countryside, people live in much closer proximity to nature, surrounded by forces human beings only marginally control. In that context, individuals, families, and communities tend to feel smaller, less omnipotent, more vulnerable.”
Utter nonsense. Written, obviously, by someone who knows nothing about human nature – or anything in nature. His bias for the big city is very evident, but I doubt he even understands city people very well.
This insane idea that, somehow, everyone must live the same way, value the same things, be “controlled” – yet each faction so often demands everyone else become what THEY are, what they want, no matter what force or fraud or lies are used to get there. That includes ALL political parties and factions, all of those who are ready to riot and burn things to maintain their PC privileged positions.
Luckily for everyone, they’ll never agree on what everyone should be, and will continue to fight each other tooth and nail.
So few people seem to even consider that individuals can be equal in liberty, have very different views and priorities, yet live cooperatively in voluntary association – or be free NOT to associate if they wish.
Oh no… somehow the “will of the majority” – a real joke, actually – and whoever has the most money/power/influence is supposed to somehow overpower all individuality and create a BORG… hive mind, a population of powerless slaves.
Resistance is NOT futile. Resist!
