Contempt for the crowd.

    B R E X I T explained in a new HBO film debuting Sat., January 19th, focusing on mega data, mined personal data funded by Robert Mercer and social media. [Mercer played a key role in the Brexit campaign by donating data analytics services to Nigel Farage.]

    Thomas Merton:

    “Descending into the crowd, the individual loses his personality and his character and perhaps even his moral dignity as a human being. Contempt for the ‘crowd’ is by no means contempt for mankind. The crowd is below man. The crowd devours the human that is in us to make us the members of a many-headed beast […] the press and the radio too oftener simply the voice of the vast aggregation that is something less than human.”
