Their Vision of La-La Land

Something just occurred to me. A lot of collectivists, under different labels and categories, seem to have their ideal centralized “master plan” vision where “the people” own and control everything collectively, but those same theorizing collectivists never even get around to thinking about having to force anyone to comply and conform, because their daydreaming only gets to the point where they just imagine everyone agreeing and going along with the plan. They picture a giant hippie commune scene where everyone is happy and loving and caring and sharing, and there is no need for any control, or decision-making, or coercion, because in their imagination (and only in their imagination) there is no disagreement or dissent that needs dealing with.

This is a drastically naive and childish way to think (but so is communism to begin with), but I really think that a number of collectivists really haven’t even thought about what would be done to anyone who doesn’t want to go along with the centralized plan, because in their vision of la-la-land, no one dissents or disagrees.
