would have been same in nazi germany — the jews are like poisoned candy. we have to kill them all, even good ones because you just don’t know. one rotten potato spoils the entire crop, you know!
it goes beyond fear of someone for their skin color or their hair or how they dress … and into the realm of being afraid of all the skittles, because some might kill you. it is fear then of what you can’t see, as well as what you can see.
and that comes down to very little faith in God, it really does. Or if agnostic, would be very little faith in luck, in survival.
if you live your life in fear, then you aren’t really living. and that means the enemy has won. you just don’t know it.
analogies like the skittle argument are not uncommon, but with people we generally say “one bad apple don’t spoil the whole barrel.”
and i like the saying, “get to know me first, and THEN hate me!” it speaks a very large truth — can’t tell a book by its cover. “all the world’s a stage, we are merely players.” but don’t let them play you, because all analogies eventually unravel. it’s the reality that matters.
