Civilization, emotions, and progress
This is the kind of response we see when civilization takes a leap forward. We saw it when women were fighting for the right to vote, and were threatened with death and rape. We saw it when children going to school in Little Rock were threatened and spit on by a vicious angry mob. Now we see it in in the ignorant, frightened mobs who are brainwashed by their corporate owners, to love their servitude. Sometimes people are so afraid of change, they would prefer to wallow in their familiar poverty than take a chance that life might be better. Those people today are called "conservatives."
