We’ve all been taught to view The United States as a melting pot, people of different races and cultures coming together as a nation of one identity, American. The current trend among the left is to divide us into groups with animosity and mistrust toward members of any other group. This is called “Group-Think.”
Wikipedia defines Group-Think as: “A psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of people in which the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an irrational or dysfunctional decision-making outcome.”
For instance, Black Lives Matter and those that support the movement are actively pushing black Americans into a defensive mode that demonizes white Americans and blames the white folk for all of problems of the world. This is done to dissolve any sense of unity and national pride by keeping us preoccupied with our cosmetic differences rather than our cultural similarities.
The same irrational technique is applied by the collectivists and leftist elites to gay’s, transgenders and other so called “aggrieved people” with an imaginary ax to grind. They insist these people are all victims of America’s inherent bigotry and prejudice.
Think of the efforts of these leftist elites and collectivists as an attempt to force us into some form of tribalistic culture. It’s the antithesis of the vision of the founders which was one of individualism.
As Ayn Rand said: “An individualist is a man who says: I will not run anyone’s life – nor let anyone run mine. I will not rule nor be ruled. I will not be a master nor a slave. I will not sacrifice myself to anyone – nor sacrifice anyone to myself.” Group-think and tribalism is the opposite of this way of thinking and ironically the opposite of the true definition of “progressive,” which is typical of leftists. They have a long history of perverting our language.
Today’s so called, “progressive” movement is actually “regressive” in nature, a direct attempt to de-evolve our society into a ninth century tribal culture where we are constantly at war with each other. The result of this form of civil war will give the radical elites every excuse they need to step in to restore order, or more accurately: “The New World Order.”
It’s interesting to note that the reason for the fall of Afghanistan, which we’re all watching play out right now live on TV, is a result of the very same tribal culture being pushed on us in the United States. Without a sense of national pride no nation can survive an invasion by a radical element with the intent of enslaving the dumbmasses.
I’ve always seen the underlying message of the TV show “The Walking Dead” as a social commentary on the concept of tribalism. Rather than uniting with the common goal of defeating the zombies the uninfected humans divide themselves into tribes and fight each other. It’s all about power rather than the survival of the human race.
It’s vitally important that we come back together as Americans and stand up and push back against these people. Recognize our similarities and accept and celebrate our differences. We’re a wonderfully diverse and culturally rich nation of individuals and that’s where our power as a people is derived. Don’t let these enemy’s of our way of life divide us anymore. And remember the collectivist enemy will always accuse the individualists of being selfish and greedy which is of course nonsense as their hypocrisy is blatant and upfront every time they claim to be the savior of minorities. They are not in any way supporters of minorities.
As Americans we are a people who celebrate diversity and the civil rights of all minorities. And the smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.
We must recognize that every man and woman as an independent, sovereign entity who possesses an inalienable right to his own life, a right derived from God and our nature as rational beings.
We must hold that a civilized society, or any form of association, cooperation or peaceful co-existence among men, can be achieved only on the basis of the recognition of individual rights – and that a group or tribe, as such, has no rights other than the individual rights of its members.
All of us, as Americans must strive to rebuild our community’s with like minded individuals who will defend and support America, our Constitution and the freedom of all men and women to speak their mind without fear of retribution or retaliation from the collectivists in the lame-stream media, politics, or any other entity who would seek to violate our God given rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
It’s time to take our country back!
