This chapter offers some final thoughts on the accomplishments and shortcomings of this book. Anti-elitism emerged as a common theme throughout all chapters of this book. Western civilization, once analyzed from a decolonial perspective, emerges as a movement to destroy communal bonds, along with other bonds previously connecting humans to each other, to nature, their past, and their gods. Once Western civilization transformed communities into individuals, rule could take hold in the form of some individuals claiming superior knowledge, often combined with superior strength. The usurpation of political power and its concentration in a few hands was a male endeavor, ending previously dominant gender equity. The more some individuals were able to concentrate political power in their hands, the less responsible average citizens became, leaving citizen duties and mutual responsibilities to the state. As this book was written during the COVID-19 epidemic, the lack of citizen responsibility became painfully evident. This chapter ends with a call to reconquer politics and bring it back into community control.
