The collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat - all virtually the same) movement has always been a movement that has succeeded because the population was a compliant population. To be compliant is to be inclined to agree with others or obey rules, especially to an excessive degree; acquiescent. Compliant people are those who are more concerned with being accepted by the many as opposed to ask why. They do not ask why we should say undocumented when in fact illegal is the proper term. They do not ask why those who are not citizens should be treated as if they were citizens. They do not ask why it is fair, or even reasonable, for those who do not meet the standards set for all should be allowed to be excused from those standards. They do not ask why every government mandate should not be questioned.
Compliant people are easily susceptible to propaganda. When government officials tell the compliant that their dictates are for the good and the safety of all, the compliant simply say tell me what to do. When government officials tell the compliant that their dictates are different from what the facts say they are, the compliant will believe the government officials. When the government officials establish certain rituals and signals to show the support of the people for them, the compliant not only will quickly accept the rituals and signals for themselves, they will denounce and demonize the people who do not. When the government officials tell the compliant that the sacrifices they are making is in the best interest of all, the compliant will ask how else they can sacrifice.
Compliant people are the type of people who like to be told what to do. Compliant people are the type of people who do not want to take responsibility for themselves or for their decisions. Compliant people want to be told the answer and not do their own research and arrive at their own conclusion. Compliant people are easily indoctrinated while rejecting education.
Americans gained their freedom and independence because they were not compliant. Americans have excelled and made their own way because they were not compliant. Americans have remained free and independent because they were not compliant. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party has support today because many Americans have chosen the simple way, they have chosen to reject Americanism and become compliant. Collectivism requires a compliant population. Freedom and liberty cannot and will not survive when the population becomes compliant.
