Re: Spiritual and i/p
Herd animal handlers love to control them with nanny state techniques. They use a form of propaganda that teaches that everyone must be protected from the boogie man. Then they teach the herd that they should "see something, then say something". Spy on your neighbor. Let the nanny state touch your junk in order to protect you. Hunt your brother for the massa. Don't worry, he good to us. You can even teach the herd to eat it's own. Big Agra is doing that with cattle. Perhaps, in the near future, Hunger Games will be a reality. It won't be the first time.
I would prefer to have a forum where new folks can learn to think for themselves; learn to trust their own instincts; to think outside the box; to be lions. That just doesn't happen with nanny-type teaching methods. Kids get bloody noses and bounce back stronger. Trust them to self navigate and they will learn to do it. Put too many protections on the process and they will always need the crutch you provided.
A rant from an iconoclast deep ecologist libertarian.
