These are not deep philosophical thinkers but leaders of groups which view us as a fly in the ointment that cannot form part of the human fabric. We are to be viewed as defectives in need of pity and moral guidance. Never mind that we come from all walks of life including politicians, lawyers, engineers, scientists or social workers; the mental illness model fits just as well as any even if it bristles against reality. The fact that the world doesn’t actually work the way these groups mandate doesn’t matter to them. It is much more important to keep their flocks obedient and subservient because many if not most cannot think for themselves; or at least that is what these leaders are sure is the case.
You and I know that this is a ruse and eventually so will the rest of the world and in the meantime we will do our best to educate amidst that firm resistance.
