Totalitarian systems call on their members to defer reason and judgment in crucial areas to an expert class. Those swept up in the mass formation are convinced to place their faith not in God or religion, but experts and science. Just like with religion, this new machine messiah demands sacrifice and a subordination of will to itself.
Mass formations depend upon fear to exist. As long as people can be made to fear something, a totalitarian system can be established and maintained.
Is this UN scheme a fund for natural disasters, or simply a means to redistribute wealth on a global scale?
Unlike a dictatorship, the head of a totalitarian regime is an ideology. That makes it very hard to end the regime by simply toppling its titular leader. You must discredit the ideology or subsume it with another one.
This goes a long way towards explaining the kind of vitriol and condescension so prevalent on the left nowadays towards anybody who refuses to go along with them. This explains the steep rise of authoritarianism, especially in the West around COVID and climate-change.
Things like ESG already control the behavior of individuals indirectly. The aim of the Utopian Left is to extend this sort of control to the individual level. Examples of this can already be seen in such things like vaccine passports and mask mandates. The reliance on technology will be used as a point of control. Access to things like education, online commerce, and entertainment will be subject to an ever-increasing array of rules and regulations. In order to partake in the modern lifestyle, people will be made to trade their freedom and privacy for goods and services.
Independent thinkers question the intentions of others and have a stubborn reliance on facts when it comes to making important decisions for themselves and their loved ones. The leftist elite cannot have anyone questioning their decisions, much less refusing to go along with them. To paraphrase the fascists-- Nothing outside the collective, everything inside the collective, and nothing against the collective. All wants and needs must align with those of the collective. We see this taken to its logical extreme in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, when society completely collapses without the services of those who refuse to sacrifice their own self-interest to an ungrateful society that takes them for granted.
The Left is highly motivated by fear, and they fear a world in which they are not in control they will be victimized by those who are. This is driven by the Marxist belief that all power imbalances between people result in a oppressor/oppressed relationship.
What kind of person is so caught up in the climate-change alarmism that they’d suggest pets are part of the problem? Perhaps someone caught up in mass-formation psychosis. (Oops! Did I say the 'M-F' word?) Pets are part of our families in the West, so it's no wonder that the left under Marxism, wants Fido and Kitty too. The Leftist religion of Climate Change makes way for this new target, our pets. This may sound off-the-wall, but then, there's a reason we use the word "psychosis," and we explore the role mass-formation psychosis or "mass hysteria," has been used to build totalitarian regimes.
For people who love their pets, even liberals who don't own a gun, don't have kids, don't own a car, or don't understand money, their pets might be where they finally draw the line. The love of pets is one of the last commonalities between the Left and the Right in this world. You can mess with someone's gun, their car or their money, but don't mess with their pets. CNN may be barking up the wrong tree when it comes to downsizing Fido or Kitty.
