When a group assigns itself solid “victim-status,” it creates one basic rule: a member must not leave the group. Why? Because if he does, he’s claiming he is no longer a victim—and that assertion is a betrayal.
Nice and neat. A prison.
“I’m a free individual.”
“You’re crazy. There is no such thing. Now get back in the group where you belong.”

ANY person who exits an “officially designated victim-group”…and then succeeds in life on his own…and then goes one step further and refuses to identify his entire existence with his former group…but instead stands as a unique individual…why, that person, at the very least, must be a criminal, if not a terrorist, right?
That’s the crux of the issue: never leave your group.
That’s how society, civilization, and culture are promoted these days.
“Groups have needs, agendas, and problems, and the solution will come from government.” That’s the all-embracing formula.
The fake appearance is: victim groups are fighting for recognition and special status, and the government is pushing back—but that’s now a ruse. That’s a cover story. In fact, victim groups and government have the same goal: a relationship based on dependence. One side depends and the other side gives and protects.
The individual is out of the equation. He is portrayed as the greed-obsessed reason these victim groups exist and need help in the first place.
Banks, Wall Street, and mega-corporations are depicted as the end result of individualism.
In fact, government, banks, Wall Street, and mega-corporations are joined at the hip. They brush each other’s teeth first thing every morning.
Political correctness and the burgeoning movement to outlaw “offensive language” are merely tactics to: preserve groups’ separate identities; foment conflict between them; and ultimately foster their dependence on government authority.
The truth is, you can’t get free individuals to depend on government. Only “besieged groups” can be relied on for that purpose.
In the State’s eyes, a perfect society would be composed of groups who have entirely forgotten the concept of the individual, as if it never existed….
