Even modern, fear-driven individuals are susceptible to conspiracy theories and ideologies of all kinds. These are reinforced by protagonists who recognise the potential of social networks and their algorithms.
People often do not evaluate political rationality with their minds, but instead with a lot of emotion from their heart rapidly confronting them with a false alternative between good or evil. There is no longer truth or falsehood, but rather a creed frequently fortified by moral pathos plus hatred of the non-believers. It is a kind of moralising dictatorship attempting to dominate citizens` attitudes.
This is often linked to a sense of entitlement and prohibition: some want to arrange other people’s according to their own personal standards. The vegan does not want another person to eat meat. The next person does not want Muslims, migrants or coloured people in its country. The third does not like cars in the city. The fourth wants to carry his weapons openly.
Human nature too often reveals a broad spectrum developing from gentle recommendations to brutal dictatorial prohibition and command. But this leads to a restriction of freedom setting free totalitarian poison. This attitude endangers diversity, plurality of opinions and thus the foundation of democracy.
