No, it should be clear and obvious that I was appealing to the absurd. Only if reality parallels that absurdity can it then be construed as a serious point. So tell me - is the idea patently and easily seen as absurd, or is it in your view a serious reality?
I’m not sure who you mean by “we” or what the “fight” is that you are imagining.
Hyperbole - again. Nowhere close to factually correct.
But again, you are stuck in the old language of 1990’s conservative talk radio that has no relevance in describing the current situations.
Individual experience and experience in microcultures most likely. I see a very huge gap between the overall general local state culture and my own microculture, and an even larger gap with the national culture.
Simple - don’t try to “implement” it. Live it. The same answer again to the same broken record question based on the real world data that Democratic socialism works but you probably only choose to see the possibility of authoritarian socialism. Why would you hand over the keys to your kingdom to anyone? That’s not collectivism, but the exact opposite. In a collective, there is by definition no single person or group that “holds the keys”. If there is, then it by definition is not collectivism.
I don’t think so, no. Why do you equate the Democratic Party and Integral? For that matter, the Democratic Party isn’t even Green, much less Teal or Higher. It’s an organization that operates through power and money. We can argue if the Republican party or Democratic party operates more in Red, Amber or Orange but political parties deal in power, money and influence for their group, not in integrating all levels all quadrants.
Whether “IT Geeks” “get anything done” is purely up to the geek.
But also, IT actually has the word “Theory” in it - not It’s not Integral Implementation or Integral World Domination or anything else. It’s a theory, a way to describe something. Many people who live integral lives may know nothing of integral theory and many who know integral theory back and forth may not lead integral lives.
