Peter Viereck on Metapolitics

Discussing similarities in Germany and America in 1941 when he first published Metapolitics.  “An over-mechanized and over-specialized industrial society is spawning mass men, instead of responsible, self-disciplined individuals rooted in the universal moral values” (Metapolitics p. 307)  Viereck predicited that Americans may get a similar version of what Nazi Germany arrived at: collectivism.  What a prophet he was in an age when we cannot even question the war or we are “not supporting the troops.”  Dissent is not allowed in this mass produced age and where we are so over specialized that prices are soaring through the roof in both college and medical fields of absurdity.

The answer to collectivism is localism.  The answer to 1984 is 1776.
