The Visible and the Invisible Side of the Masses

Like the moon, the masses have two sides: one side is visible and bright while the other side is invisible and dark. The visible side of the masses yearns for a society in which all human beings can pursue their rational ambitions and live a good life. The invisible side is mired in false values—it is driven by the feelings of irrationalism, jealousy, and hatred. The contest between the visible and the invisible side of the masses determines the course of a nation’s politics. The liberals are good at appealing to the invisible side of the masses, while the conservatives are good at appealing to the visible side.
