The hawk and the flock exist as predator and prey. The hawk depends on a consensus of fear within the flock. The fear of being devoured alive makes the flock gather in a large defensive group. The strategy might be that fleeing the talons of the hawk in great numbers makes the choice of an individual difficult. This strategy works well for the hawk, whose brain is larger, whose flight skills are greater and whose strategy is nearly flawless.
The hawk in this case is the airtight, no debate allowed, mind numbing insistence that whoever speaks the same words and concepts that is heard from the US leftist media and the Democratic party, Its all true no debate allowed, not only must you use the same words, you must feel the same as the dogmatic preaching you hear in person, in a group, or whoever thinks that fear is a more effective form of influence than any other method ever devised, used by totalitarian nations throughout history!
