Fracture

The solution and the inevitable result of mass society is Fracture.

That is, people are by nature best adapted to a ‘tribal’ existence. Like a presidential candidate, a massive scale society that is for everyone cannot truly be for anyone. People crave connection to their social unit on a visceral and personal level. It is this sort of connection that gives life much of its meaning. It is a basic need modern mass societies have proven completely unable to satisfy.

Introverts, many of whom already exist under the surface are in an ideal position to break away entirely and colonize the void.
Mass society by its very nature has already set apart from the whole a group of people with similar tendencies and values. Most importantly, they share a lack of belonging.
