Quote from Atomik
I don't think what individuals would or wouldn't "support" is the issue. It's not about our opinions and beliefs - it's about the realities that are manifested by our fundamental nature.
Ah, I didnt mean it in the "opinion and beliefs" way but in their going along with it without real opposition They'd cry out for their mummies rather than say "fuck this" and wander off to make the most of their newly aquired social freedom
For example, I've seen communes of well-meaning, sincere and idealistic people descend into the worst kind of political in-fighting, despite the intentions of their members.
Intentions schmentions. Anyone who wants to set up an ordered, controlled, managed society is in their heart always going to be suited to "political in-fighting". They can claim otherwise, but words are cheap
People are fucked up. Some are more fucked up than others, but we're all fucked up.
Nah, in the wider sense they arnt fucked up at all; they are just a different sub-species of humanity (again, species is a poor word as part of the difference is learned/gained/nuture-based not just nature-based, but hey... ); one that is poorly adapted to longterm living in the world, granted, but they may yet prove successful, develop space colonisation and find a way to live as interstellar locusts-on-steroids
But thats only one strain
