Today, with the advent of the world wide web and mass communications, humanity is starting to show signs of having a hive mind type mentality. Many people follow ideas spread by the media without fully understanding them. Often, people are complacent and conform to meaningless propaganda spread by the media.
Nobody likes the group of people that takes advantage of government assistance. If we were part of a hive mind, would we allow these people to live outside of functioning society? It also dismisses the very grounds of capitalism - a system we are a living out day to day.
