Collectivism almost always utilizes a theory called “futurism” in order to appeal to the young. The theory, which was a leading philosophy behind the rise of fascism, proclaims that all new ideas are superior in their social usefulness and all old ideas and beliefs should be abandoned like so much dead skin. According to futurism, those who cling to old ideas and principles are an obstacle to the progress of society as a whole.


Off with the old, on with the new. But shouldn't both old and new be tested against reality :?: What does arrival time have to do with whether an idea matches reality :?: Note that Islam states Mohammed is a better prophet because he arrived later, and accepts him on that basis, rather than by a reality test. And if you disagree: Off with his head :!:

The funny thing is, the ideas usually expounded by collectivists are as old as time — elitism, feudalism, totalitarianism, etc. None of these methodologies are “new” by any stretch of the imagination, but collectivists repackage them as if they are some grand new secret to Shangri-La. Younger adherents of collectivism latch onto futurism almost immediately.


A society built on the lowest common denominator is a society destined for collapse. Individuals are systematically weeded out in the name of homogenization and all of their potential achievements and innovations disappear with them.


Hey, I want to be able to read DWs superior stories :) And others also. Just finished "The Martian," which makes me think of a technical nerd's version of the pre-sound movie series "Perils of Pauline." complete with serial cliff-hangers. Well written, tho.
