Maybe we should listen to the wisdom of those who have had their country torn apart by sectarianism. Here’s what @crookedshore says are the steps to demonizing the other:
1. Assumption of Malign Intent:
“they intended to cause the harm that we experienced”

2. Distrust:
“every idea or statement by them is wrong, or proposed for dishonest reasons”

3. Externalisation of Guilt:
“everything bad or wrong that has happened to us is their fault”
4. Attribution of Evil:
“They want to destroy us and what we value most and must therefore be destroyed themselves”

5. Zero-Sum Interests:
“everything that benefits them, harms us and vice versa”

At dinner, I learned more about corruption + racism built into society by our masters. A book we discussed (Zinn) was used as part of this "Left" resource's bibliography. I had to share. [A thread]

@BlackSocialists - thoughts on this resource?
It very simply lays out the case that we are all being controlled. It covers hidden history of the United States including their (and, due to the systems created by our masters, our) racism.
