Why the Daily Mail and Sun and Mirror and Express are implicitly (and unknowingly) mocking their own readers 24/7/365.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Chomsky writes "Reinhold Niebuhr argued that "rationality belongs to the cool observers," while "the proletarian" follows not reason but faith, based upon a crucial element of "necessary illusion." Without such illusion, the ordinary person will descend to "inertia." Then in his Marxist phase, Niebuhr urged that those he addressed - presumably, the cool observers - recognize "the stupidity of the average man" and provide the "emotionally potent oversimplifications" required to keep the proletarian on course to create a new society; the basic conceptions underwent little change as Niebuhr became "the official establishment theologian"". Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Today's governments subscribe to Niebuhr's views openly and officially.

Removal of resistance: It is time for the masses, the so-called "99%", to challenge the assumption. Unification: All of us have a right to become cleverer every day. A situation which precludes that is unacceptable and those who can challenge it must and they must lead others to challenge it also, until eventually the entire 99% challenges this one basic principle on which tyranny is founded.
