part 2 – “the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members”
Actually it doesn’t. The future of the human race requires FREEDOM!!! Individual freedom in American is protected by the United States Constitution. The Constitution is designed to protect the rights of individuals EVEN FROM THE WILL OF THE MOB!!!
What we’re seeing in Occupy Wall Street (and by extension Occupy SLC) is mob rule. The problem is, mobs generally defer to strong leaders who become dictators and the only result is Tyranny. John Suart Mill called it “the tyranny of the majority” but we might as well call it the tyranny of the 99%. It’s basically the same thing.
