I am wary of large groups of Sheeple who possess more agility than backbone. I've found self-proclaimed "Progressives" to be nasty, flocking birds reminiscent of Stephen King's "Cell." Many are members of the "skunk-weasel" family.
From The Art of Urban Survival, by Stefan H. Verstappen: On the national level, countries ruled by psychopaths become corrupt and brutish police states constantly at war with created and imaginary enemies. The population becomes paranoid, neurotic, and ultimately secondary psychopaths. In a psychopathic culture, everyone must adopt a ruthless attitude as a survival strategy.
