It is so comforting to Know – to know no doubts – to have all the answers, even when they are not the right ones.
People feel safe when they can identify – apply labels to others – politics, religion, gender, language, nationality. It gives the illusion of control of their lives.
Other folks, and their related social problems, are complex, and fully-formed. They are not easy, one-dimensional, cookie-cutter simple.
It is usually better to make decisions and form opinions based on reality, rather than preconceived notions. More people should try it. They might find those feared – and hated – Others…. are quite sweet.
