Idiots, Zealots, Elitists and Patriots: The 4 Monkeys of Modern Society

Characterized by how they respond to information, modern societies are made up of four archetypes of people — idiots, zealots, elitists and patriots. Idiots refuse information, zealots refute information, elitists misuse information and patriots seek and distribute information. These archetypes are true of patriarchal societies around the world, and has probably been the case since Homo habilis was a […]

Idiots, Zealots, Elitists and Patriots: The 4 Monkeys of Modern Society

By Kenneth T.

My blog, My way

Welcome to a little piece of my life.
Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings.

For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life.

Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~

You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-)

And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse.
There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.

Some must have a very… very… different idea of what it means to be a “patriot” than I do. Sorry but the “patriot” monkey is worse than the other three. Surely if one wanted to speak of an enlightened individual there are better descriptions than patriot. In my world patriot stands solidly in line with bigot. I know the article tried to explain, but it won’t wash. I’ve known too many patriots. Replace your patriot with a compassionate being.
