Not much of a Jungian, but this is good. Socialists never acknowledge the the importance of the individual, and individual rights as envisioned by the founders. They have embraced the cultural Marism of Groupism and Group Rights. Just listen to Hillary, the original 60s Marxist, and read the writings of her mentor Saul Alinsky.

How typical of the rodent from the underworld... votes twice with commentary that has nothing to do with the quote... which is indeed a pretty poor excuse of a quote, as the two axis are close to independant.

In other words, it will be hard to resist the collective unless you are as sure of yourself as 'they' are.

I don't believe the collectivists are all that sure of themselves. That's why they have to herd together with groupthink and shout down anyone who disagrees with them. If shouting doesn't work they will call you names, dehumanize you by calling you a rodent or rat. Eventually they will decide you are a reactionary and try to kill you to silence that little, nagging doubt in their minds.

Thanks Ken. Names do not bother me, I am an individual with the courage of my convictions and the means to defend them. Those who stand up and are willing to be counted are worth at least twice the those who hide in the cowardice of being anonymous. I am not hard to find, and I fear no socialist. Bring it on! Mission Accomplished!

Roger, thanks for the clarification. It was actually an accidental double click originally, but I do not believe in throwning barbarians scalps. Let them collect their own. Thanks for the service, I appreciate it.

Helorat, I have complete confidence that you can take a few leftist barbs. Mine was just an observation of the liberal mind (their collective mind, that is, since that's all they have).

helorat, Milton

Quite true and thanks Ken.

The quote is spot on ! In order to take the helm you must first be held accountable for previous actions. Experience is our guide to understanding. Though the mass have might, it only has one head. Truth can approach and subdue. Wounding the head of the house. Jung saw much deeper in relation to time and event, personal experience. But noted down through time. Understanding ones roll in-relationship, a gift. Through Desire a man having separated himself, seeks and intermeddles with all wisdom. A fool has no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself. Prov 18:1,2.
