Conquest comes later as a result of ego, en mass.
Back to the renaissance, Douglas Murray brings criticism to this period for good reason, given the current situation, is that that period "didn't go deep enough". Deep enough into the collective unconscious. It was tilted to right hemisphere of the collective mind.

It's unbalance emotion preyed upon by those that do not have your best interests in mind.
With these previous systems of thought now eroding, which this effort or movement will only get worse (deepfakes, fake news, the emotion rearing up to challenge any type of logic), this movement has a lot of years of history to contend with.

Discard everything you think you know.
But not tune out or tune in.
There's plenty of stones from walls to throw the ball at now.
