  1. well, this came up in another thread and i thought it timely and threadworthy. it's world politics not just American.

    let's start with this please. i'll add some critical examples (videos).

    everyone has seen the toddler saying she hates jews because they are apes and pigs.

    barely old enough to learn language concepts, let alone this type of hate, which for the child, becomes a lifetime emotional prison sentence.






    these are the tame ones folks...

    0bama for president

    It is an aspect of the problem, but this sort of thinking exists everywhere in various degrees. Look at the demonization of our democratically elected president as an example. Look at the republican attitude towards immigrants. Look to the white power militias in America. Lots of hatred to go around. Does that explain ISIS? hardly, it may just be the middle east religious states will have to go through their own particular religious wars as Europe did long ago. See article below on Isis.

    Evil grows in the most unlikely places sometimes. Read Stanley Milgram or check out this video: Philip Zimbardo The psychology of evil Talk Video TED.com

    Interesting piece on IS, What ISIS Really Wants - The Atlantic

    "If you think the United States could never elect an Adolf Hitler to power, note that David Duke would have become governor of Louisiana if it had just been up to the white voters in that state." Robert Altemeyer
