Primitive societies were constructed by people with the same value system and mostly ruled by religious beliefs.
Collective thinking has been diluted by individualism in modern society. Unshackled from institutionalized ideology and state control, citizens can exercise originality in their actions and viewpoints. But, if we live in one society and each one of us have a different way of looking at it;
will individuality prevail as a positive turn in human history?
YES, riding along with freedom, individuality is most feared by the powerful, as each one of us can spin our notion of reality into something we believe can be better or worse. Conversely, oppressors must narrow down their options in order to take control.
Xi scrutinizes the Chinese; Little Kim’s gruesome theatrics keep his people emotionally paralyzed. Vladimir is locking up the net and MBS allegedly got away with murder. But are these controllers despised or admired by their equals?
With all that in play, heads of state remove the oil stains from their Sunday best and do business as usual. Deep down one can’t refrain from thinking that most government heads wish we were back in a primitive society, where citizen’s thoughts were mainly dictated by collective faith.
Undoubtedly, artificial intelligence will become governments best way to dominate their citizens. Nevertheless, the Genie of Freedom is also out of the bottle,
once we taste freedom, we will die to keep it.
All these governments, and many others, share the historical fact that they will never have the silent control over their people enjoyed by their predecessors.

If my perspective helped or entertained you in any way, please consider a donation to assist Edge of Humanity Magazine to continue to provide neutral, outside of the box content.
Neutrality comes with the price of being disconnected. Society is composed of like-minded people; teal lovers search for bluish-green connections, and the burnt sienna worshippers choose to navigate a path that’s deep reddish brown. Embracing the color wheel will yield richer exposure and isolation.
There is no glory in neutrality.
