Ideologues and Intellectuals are True Believers

Oddly enough, a few days ago, Vox posted an article revealing that a large amount of millennials say they have no friends. Unfortunately, the millennials are a very damaged generation and are prime recruits for the Left as revealed in Eric Hoffer’s book The True Believer.

The below video is a review of Eric Hoffer’s book and he argued that all political and religious activists share the same motivations: Those who dedicate their lives to a cause are running from themselves. Hoffer gives some fascinating insights about the dark consequences that follow when people evade the responsibility for improving themselves and choose to act out their frustrations on the world instead. That is clearly the motivation, not just of environmentalists, but also the most recent mass shooters.
