Wow, you got really hung up on the context of the word collective. It’s not a conspiracy. It just means the majority opinion." individuals already feeling apart from the collective " interesting word choice, collective?
I thought we lived in a Representative Republic with a strong set of INDIVIDUAL RIGHTs, and have a Federalist form of Governance, not a Central Government "Collective".
Seems the current powers to be are striving for an all-powerful Central Government Collective, which is Unconstitutional, perhaps that's why the current POTUS is calling former Police and Military potential "White Supremacist" terrorists since all of those seriously took an Oath to Defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign, and DOMESTIC??? The Police and the Military are potential blocks to any dictatorship arising, must demonize and marginalize them now!
