It's as if the entire population is retarded, while accusing me of being so.
It's definitely the case.
Worse, as Nietzsche points out, this insanity/retardation is common to groups.
I think the emotional core of it is resentment, and the intellectual core is rule-making.
We make a rule that says there must be a catch point every three miles, and a footpath every three miles, and then ten thousand rules about where those can't go.
That leaves only a few places and the two coincide... but we can't break any of those other rules.
Or can we?
One reason I'm a monarchist:
Organic human logic is always preferable to rules.
Rules exist just to convince us that people are all equal if you just give them the right instructions.
Singly, they make perfect rational sense (P.R.S.) but together: insanity.
Like humans in a group.
