Sophistication's delta.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: The Rutherford Institute writes 'We were once a society that valued individual liberty and privacy. But in recent years we have turned into a culture that has quietly accepted surveillance cameras, police with drug-sniffing dogs in our children's schools, national databases that track our finances and activities, sneak-and-peek searches and seizures of our homes without our knowledge or consent, and anti-terrorism laws that turn average Americans into suspects. In short, America has become a lockdown nation, and we are all in danger'. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: The Tao Te Ching advises '"DROP wisdom, abandon cleverness,

And the people will be benefited a hundredfold.



Drop humanity, abandon justice,

And the people will return to their natural affections.



Drop shrewdness, abandon sharpness,

And robbers and thieves will cease to be.



These three are the criss-cross of Tao,

And are not sufficient in themselves.

Therefore, they should be subordinated

To a Higher principle:

See the Simple and embrace the Primal,

Diminish the self and curb the desires!"'

Removal of resistance: I think that the biggest problem, in short, in this 'modern' 'west' - is the absurd self-importance prevalent in most minds, the arrogant delusion of grandeur set against an infinite universe hugely inferior to the human individual living in 'modern' 'Britain' and 'America'. Unification: And yet when I hear the man singing 'bailamos, let the rhythm take you over, bailamos' I know that the human race is VERY in touch with the real grandeur of the universe.
