  •  Let me just suggest that instinct-driven people (18+ / 0-)

    are groupists and groupies. For them to recognize other people, they have to be in some group that shares common characteristics. So, if some categories are precluded, they've got to find another for which they won't be ridiculed. "Communist" has a long pedigree. "Illegals" obviously doesn't apply to someone born in Hawaii. "Democrat" is upsetting because they do believe in democracy -- i.e. the right people getting to vote.
    That exchange was interesting because what we had there was mirroring. The woman wanted attention and when she got it, she simply responded to whatever Chris said.
    Instinct-driven people are naturals for the media because they don't have any inihibitions.

    We organize governments to provide benefits and prevent abuse.
