Make no mistake, the folks in the community I mentioned rely quite heavily on each other.
Some have already lived the 'big city' life and now take great pleasure in their rural existence.
The wealth that they have can't be measured in nickels and dimes.
Perhaps the quote you shared from Marquand has some merit!
That is sooooo ridiculous and you are so blind!
The Randian Utopia: be a winner in the rat race, then move to a retirement community where no one has needs.
See, that's why yous guys sound ridiculous to the rest of us. And you can't even see that.
That must still be pretty smelly having just been pulled from your arse.
The community I'm refering to is a group of families made up of as many as 4 generations.
There are also dozens of individuals in this area living virtually unsupported by any 'collective brain'.
For an author such as Eukora quoted to spout such nonsense is pure B.S.
I especially like your closing statement where you think you're speaking for the collective 'us'.
Can anyone say Megalomaniac?
"The megalomaniac differs from the narcissist by the fact that he wishes to be powerful rather than charming, and seeks to be feared rather than loved. To this type belong many lunatics and most of the great men of history." [Bertrand Russell]
I've a pretty good guess as to which one you think
Small wonder that you now find yourself on the backside of life with no mate or meaningful relationship.
Therefore it's not the least bit surprising that you're so maniacal about being part of a collective.
That my friend, is what I call 'ridiculous and blind'.
