By way of example in support of the quote, how many socialists comprehend what socialism is (vs. liberty, rights, a republican form of government, other religions and secularism/natural law, etc.) before parroting their particular social enclave's sound bites.

Bridging gaps for the sake of peace, Spiritual measurement is the origin of carnal calculating.

The constant push for more 'education' has resulted in a society of parrots that simply repeat verbatim what they have been conditioned to say.  Rather than teaching students how to reason and discern, they are taught to memorize and repeat.  No need to question, the answers are supplied en masse, no questions needed.  Questions get you sent to the principal's office.

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

It is lamentably true that there exist comparatively few whose ideation is
actually Sovereign in character.

Among those whose are not so substantial within themselves as to be equipped to be graciously tolerant of any who possess perspectives divergent from their own, a pathologically great premium is placed on conformity.

The realization of our Humanity resides in the perfection of our Sovereign Individuality, not in our identification with the collective.
