Just to reiterate and resurrect this thread (as I find it very intriguing)
With regards to the hivemind;- both Communo-Fascism (Stalinism) Fascism and Collectivism act upon the same basis, Fascism and Stalinism revolve around
the Personality Cult and the State, whereby - the hivemind is centered around the Leader, whose every word is law and the hivemind follows its every
whim, thought, word, etc. down to its defining character (Fight Club is a good example of this mechanic)
So in essence, Fascism is true to the hive, with its leader being the Queen Bee, this in turn is enforced as the ideal, fans of popular singers etc.
act no different to believing their personality of choice has the ideal life, thus, they in turn act upon them, and simply become part of the herd.
Collectivism however, differentiates itself by making any potentially existing personality in question to be obscured, and as a result, reinforces the
belief that the collective life is ideal simply by consensus thought, which leads to an unquestioning obedience and servility to the collective by
means of this programmed idea of whatever matter of concern, typically - happiness.
Funnily, and somewhat ironically, it could be said Capitalism acts on the same basis, by replacing the needs of others and secured "happiness" with
"opportunity" for the collective consensus which thus creates a castration of excuse for the party it concerns whensoever they may find their
pursuit of happiness to be denied...as such, ideologies have been and are carefully designed for the sake of having perfected defense mechanisms...
Leaving one who seeks freedom from the herd to be left with anarchism, which as we know is not applicable in this environment save for
psycho/sociopaths and nomads, and/or to seek a high-rank in the system, if and when possible, by which I mean to suggest authoritarianism as a means
of escaping the hivemind, yet, both, when studied and considered carefully are two peas in a pod (Are your world leaders "anarchists" for
Sorry for the divergence, but they are everywhere, yet there is also the matter of Subjectivism and Solipsism to consider, not to mention Narcissism,
which, either as active or passive forces, seek to either create the effects of the hivemind or to mimic them, for all you know, you could be the
personality in question and the hivemind acts upon your whim, but I could say the same, but many condolences to any on this thread, I've been
studying this topic a long time, and it's a real nightmarish concept.
