You just have to understand the ANT DNA

What if everyone raised their arms and shouted "Follow me, I know the way"
What if no one raised their arms and shouted "Follow me, I know the way"

Obviously what we need is some people shouting "Follow me, I know the way"

What if some people raised their arms and shouted "Follow me, I know the way" and no one followed.

What happens is some people raise their arms and shout "Follow Me" and some people follow. Sometimes it is tens, sometimes thousands, sometimes millions.

Why is that?

We need to seriously consider the reality of the human condition. The Human DNA creates those who lead and those who follow. By design so we can be successful, a Darwinian observable aspect of Human Kind.

It happens in wolf packs, Horse herds and many other animal kingdoms. In the human species it is often without a physical struggle. We run primaries and elections and other non destructive methods to select leaders. Yet violence often accompanies the process, because it is inherent in the process of selecting leaders that violence might occur.

I find that in these discourses it is enough to try to make one small point at a time. It is very difficult to build a discourse that presents everything about everything.

The point I want to make is some people will follow. This doesn't require thinking it requires making choices. Choices can be made without thinking. Choices can be made that are not good for us. Choose whipped cream instead of broccoli. Whatever it is, it isn't required to be intellectual.

Then there are these terms, cognitive dissonance which is ignoring facts that question your beliefs. Then there is mass delusional behavior like committing suicide to join a comet to go to another world.

We have created labels for a human behavior, we have labeled it without addressing the truth.

Cognitive dissonance and delusional behavior is not a mental disorder, it is the natural order of human kind.

It is totally obvious that segments of the population act in lockstep about issues. We understand how ANTS commit to the collective based on DNA and chemical engineering. Many species use this commitment to the collective to succeed and achieve the Darwinian described survival.

We tend to think of man kind as some species outside the Darwinian blue print. You better rethink that. If you expect that the future will be decided by some intellectual exercise you better rethink that. It is more likely to be decided by who can lead the largest number of delusional citizens toward the Nirvana the guy raising his arms and shouting is convinced is some ultimate solution.

Can you change that?

I think not.

There is a scientific consensus and my opinions are unrefuted.
