We Humans Are Apes. Periodically, We "Go Animal" And Visceral Feeling Displaces Reason
Somebody Else’s Babies
Wilders, the Netherlands and the alt-Right universe
Whatever else we humans may be, we are certainly simian. Periodically, our chest-thumping nature gets the better of us and we "go animal." In this zoologically-regressed state, homo sapiens' ability to reason is overwhelmed by the force of visceral feeling. What emerges is the tribe, the herd, the pack... As George Carlin observed: "Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups." Monkey see. Monkey do. Monkey get in trouble too.
