People, generally speaking, are pretty unconscious. Until that changes, you can’t rely on the collective for a clear idea of what matters and what’s going on in the world. The group mind lacks both wisdom and intelligence. This is true of literally all groups and factions.
You’ve got to figure it out on your own, take responsibility for your understanding. You can’t rely on anyone else to do it for you, and you can’t look to what your ideological faction is excited about today for any clues. You’ll be misled. Focus on honing your inner sense maker.
This is what I mean when I say be outwardly collectivist but inwardly individualist. Humanity’s problems cannot be solved without replacing competition with collaboration, but the responsibility for your perception of reality is yours and yours alone.
Thanks to Caitlin Johnstone for these words.
