    I figure we could end up with international fascism, just because so many on the right have been so bombarded with half truths that take advantage of their pre-existing beliefs. And, beneath the veneer of upholding freedom and individualism, is always the specter of tribalism and bigotry.

    People aren't stupid as individuals. They become stupid when they get together and form echo chambers that revolve around some guru or another.

    Very interesting Wind. Of course, there is much to be discussed here but I won't. I don't want to be redundant. I did notice when citing the Romanian underground dude the narrator noted that that individual grew to be very wealthy and powerful. Therein lies the seeds of ultimate failure. It's the imbalance that creates the problem. What is the oft-repeated phrase, "So below, So above" or some such nonsense like that there? If there is a top then there is a bottom and someone will feel cheated and thus start the cycle once again. But it does foster a transitional state to something better which ultimately is good. Incidentally, it is a process that brings itself to life by the human nature of it. It has always occurred. I have an old friend that is a horticulturist based on that very same approach to life. A bigger question might be when and why does such a condition exists to spontaneously generate this form of sentient philosophy.
