Increasingly, this clash of alternate realities, of worldviews, grows and grows. We are divided by the question: Do the people serve the government, or does the government serve the people? This will not end well. As I have often observed in the past, collectivists view peace as the absence of effective opposition made possible by the imprisonment or death of their perceived enemies -- by the silence of dissenting voices however they achieve it. You do not negotiate an end to such a fight. You either win and remain free, or you lose and you and your children's children become slaves of the collective. Or you die in the fight. It is of supreme indifference to the collectivists how they win, as long as they win. They'll convince you (or your children) with propaganda if they can, but in the end they will kill you if they can't. We, on the other hand, have a much more difficult task. We must defend ourselves without becoming the monsters we claim to fight.
But have no illusions. This is a war of worldviews as old as human history.
