Americans are afraid – and this is their dominant motivator.
What are they afraid of? Fear itself – that is everywhere and nowhere. They have not analyzed what they are afraid of – they are not capable of that. And their inability to do this – makes their fear even worse.
Huge power structures resulted from Industrialization, in the 19th Century – and have gotten even more powerful in today’s Computer World. People are right to be afraid of this – even if they cannot put their fingers on what it is.
I used to think that Software would save the world – really! That somehow it would enforce our rational nature and overcome our irrational nature. There was even a company called Rational Software that tried to do this – but failed completely, and was bought up by IBM.
IBM’s software enforces conformity completely – anyone different is cast into the outer darkness!
