Been waiting for this one for a while now as it explains why so many of us are pushing back on political correctness, post-modernism, collectivism and so on. What do all these have in common – being defined by your group instead of being defined as an individual.
“Which is why collectivists have to shut down free speech. They don’t believe that there is such a thing as free speech, nor is there is such a thing as an individual. You are just the avatar of your group.”
Collectivism vs Individualism
… you get it wrong, and the bodies pile up – well said Stefan.
Stefan’s masters thesis examined every philosopher’s belief system and everyone that believed in a higher realm, also believed that dictatorship was the ideal political form and every time they were empiricists, or Aristotelians, they believed that limited democracy, constitutional democracy, republic, was the ideal political form. If you believe in empiricism then every human being has the reason, capacity and material processing ability to get to the truth. Therefore human beings do not have to be ruled.
A sophist is a person who reason with clever but fallacious and decetive arguments.
