Excellent analysis, Maxmars!
I think we are moving into this direction of uniform, non-thinking judgments for three reasons. First, we are not seen as individuals anymore; we are
now seen as a herd to manage in "equality." In this way, the baby at the airport presents an equal danger as the adult man in line behind her. And
now it is the one with the shifty eyes or the one with wierd lip action who are the liars, without looking at and understanding the individual in
front of you.
Second, in our modern disconnected structure of social media, we are losing the instincts - we used to call it "people smarts" - we once gained
through extensive social interaction with others. In fact, some people are so hooked on technology entertainment, they don't even interact with
themselves that much.
Finally, we are overpopulated and in places that are overcrowded, interacting with the individual means less than managing the herd. It is all
resulting, ultimately in a lack of knowledge and love for ourselves and others and the managers of the herd see us more and more as farm animals.
Orwell's vision comes to mind. Individuality and independence can not be tolerated in a mechanized police state.
As our population ages, I wonder how well grandpa and grandma will hold up to this kind of one size fits all character analysis. Hopefully they will
remember to keep their mouths shut until their lawyer is present but there is no guarentee they will remember to do that. We recently had an 80 year
old man thrown down by and officer because he touched the officer on the arm while talking with him and the officer took it as a threat. We had a
police officer who was not capable of discerning the meaning of an eigthy year old guy touching him in a friendly manner versus a gang member punching
him in the gut or reaching for his gun! The officer broke the old guy's neck.
After I finished this note to you, something else struck me. To justify the massive amount of money flowing into Homeland security, for the "war on
terror" they have expanded the enemy to include just about everyone. We have the war protestors, the anti-corporate protestors, second amendment
advocates, pro-life people, criminals, etc. (everyone including children and babies at the airports and soon, the trains and busses and malls) named
as the enemy. We now have the military industrial complex focused on creating strategies and products to focus on defeating and controling a new
enemy - us. We are a country occupied by a military force.
