    So you think emotions are the only clue to humans being dangerous? People are extremely dangerous! That is not just a perceived fear it is fact!

    I think emotions and irrational fears are the triggers for humans being dangerous. Actions are based on what you feel. What you feel is based on what you believe.

    You are absolutely correct and I agree 100 percent. Emotions and irrational fears are two of the main things that makes people dangerous. But, those are things that can be fought against and defeated by learning. Someone once said "people fear most, what they understand least". And that not only goes for things, but for people's attitudes as well. If a person doesn't understand the proper care and handling of a gun, chances are, they will be scared to handle it. Teach them how to handle it safely and properly? They no longer fear it, because now they understand it's proper use and handling.

    Same thing with people by the way. Bigoted attitudes against others because of their race, religion, sexuality or whatever, is usually because they don't know about them, nor do they have the inclination to learn. But, if you get to know the person beyond your bias against them, you may find them to be useful companions.

    America is too busy being at war with itself than fighting enemies abroad.

    The war on education is but one example.

    From what I've read, many of Hitler's eugenic ideas came from American Progressives.

    America tends to light the fire and then walk away.

    I watched a movie last night on Netflix called Extinction that talks about this very subject. Spoiler for those that hate people of color. The star and main characters are people of color.
