There’s an alarming tendency among radical intellectuals to dismiss those who don’t “get it” as mere lambs being led to slaughter – meek “sheeple”. But how does this reflect on us, our values, and our mentality vis a vis those sustaining the State? It’s easy to understand the widespread frustration in anti-authoritarian circles over people who seemingly have failed to seek enlightenment about the hegemonic hubris we face. Watch people’s reactions when you question one tenet of the Statist religion; they’ll become angry, defensive, and try to shut down the discussion. They’ll often poison the dialogue by questioning your intelligence, doubting your sanity and besmirching your personal character – assuming they even let you talk in the first place! We’re “crazy” or “naïve” or “unrealistic” for expressing our unyielding dissatisfaction with the status quo, for upholding the same moral standards to Presidents and Congressmen that we apply to everyone else.
