Stating a fact

Is not "name calling." I realize that around these parts the word, "collectivist" has negative connotations, as well it should.

What I am pointing out is that the behavior the poster above is engaging in is exactly that. The fact that he's got his own website, and he's trying to tell me what to do with mine - not just politely suggest, BUT TO DEMAND IN ALL CAPS - is the result of a collectivist mentality.

He's got his own website, but he's telling me what to do with mine. He doesn't even have the thing on his own website!

"What's yours is mine." That is a collectivist mindset. Sorry if you think that is name calling. Sorry if you think it is 'mean.' In fact, it is. I'm not engaging in idle name calling. I mean it.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
