Dear MisterBeale thank you for your honest assessment of the plight of humanity. Yes and no, I agree we have these flaws, so that COLLECTIVELY when forming CORPORATE groups, institutions, PARTIES and Govt (and also media conglomerates) YES unfortunately the worst flaws of humanity are MULTIPLIED and become oppressive and abusive. However, this is not to say it is hopeless. By treating the people making up these Govts, parties and Corporate interests as INDIVIDUALS, that's where we have every opportunity to connect as you and I do here. You and I could treat each other as just another member of an anonymous mob of mindsets on the internet. But instead we hear each other as individuals. When I address longknife, this isn't as a mindless group, but addressing an individual who believes in Constitutional laws as I do, and we respect those principles. Each person has their own language for the laws, and when we address each other by common laws we commit to follow, we have this chance to connect on common principles. I do believe it is inherent in our human nature and process of development to "break down" the mob mentality and work toward one-on-one connections. Then apply that back to COLLECTIVELY influencing our media and corporate hierarchies in turn. So the ripple effect, the law of attraction or laws of "cause and effect" play in our favor. The same PROCESS by which NEGATIVE perceptions and FEARS that bias individuals and create a whole MOB of people of that mindset also works the OTHER WAY when POSITIVE changes that expand our perception and ways of dealing with conflict start with INDIVIDUALS and replicate to affect RELATIONS around us (and that in turn multiples to affect INSTITUTIONS around us). So bad news is YES the groups and individuals co-influence each other when it comes to NEGATIVE and FEAR BASED perceptions. And GOOD NEWS is YES this dynamic also works with POSITIVE change and growth in relations and understanding to correct wrongs.
