  •  Fueling the Flames... (5+ / 0-)

    Just read a chapter in a book about why conflict, hatred, division, and yes genocide occurs. The chapter is about the genocide in Rwanda, which was fueled by elites in power as they tried to stay in power and accumulate resources...these principles apply to us too.
    Alarmingly our opportunistic politicians and media figures such as Palin, Beck, Hannity, many in the Republican Party, Tea Party, and numerous others are fueling mistrust, conflict, hatred, division, and maybe something worse by portraying Obama, Dems, and liberals as the threatening, dangerous enemy...as Communists, Socialists, and Nazis...who need to be defeated and worse.
    We need to stand up...
