In a previous post, we discussed the concepts of the individual vs the collective, determining the uniqueness of America as representing and protecting the rights of the individual. The American constitution protects against democracy, or ‘mob rule’, where the rights of the individual are overridden by the ‘majority’. One could say that democracy is totalitarianism, where the rights of the individual are sacrificed for the whole.
A common ridiculous argument of the anti-American, flat earth eligibility deniers is that “60 million people” confirmed that Obama is a ‘natural born citizen’. This is a not so subtle message underlying the socialist democrats enabling the usurper Obama.
Is collectivism the ‘highest morality‘ of human society?
