I read the news and all I have is worry.
Seems the few want to control the many. Some of the many want to be left alone, but the larger part of the many agree to the control as a proxy means of controlling the many. They themselves are being controlled, but they don’t care, as long as their chosen few are the controllers. It’s like they’re rooting for the winning sports team; if the team wins, then they win thanks to a trick of neural processing (see mirror neurons).
Their own liberty is at stake; everybody’s liberty is at stake, but god damn is that a great field goal. Hooray for our side!
