The idea that a person is a machine is only sustained while they are living in isolation. How many of us are friends with our neighbors, or even know our neighbors? It’s easy to sustain a strange and paranoid view of humans when you don’t expose yourself to the random people that live right next to you. People keep wondering why no one in this country is rising up and protesting, why people are so apathetic. If we knew all our neighbors, we would be able to unite to promote our common interests, and our most common interests are shared with the people that live on the same block as us. This is what democracy is supposed to look like, not that freak show we’re forced to care about in DC.
