Oh, wait. Let’s not. I am an unmarried man.
It is always easy to demand that your government “do something” as long as they do it someone else.
It is easy to achieve political popularity by inciting the masses to demand that the government “go after” Jews, Christians, Muslims, Catholics, Mormons, Chinese, Japanese, Injuns, white people, black people, Tutsis, Bosnians, Armenians, kulaks, landlords, people who wear glasses, gun owners, druggies, homosexuals, “the rich”, illegals, “useless eaters”, gypsies or whatever demographic might, at any given moment, be unpopular.
I am one-quarter Jewish, so Hitler would have come after me. I wear eyeglasses, so Pol Pot would have come after me. Whenever anyone suggests that the government “go after” a certain segment of the population, I start to squirm.
Did you ever stop to think that probably every genocidal dictator in history started by demonizing some segment of the population?
Demonize them … dehumanize them … declare their rights irrelevant … and eventually kill them en masse.
What goes around comes around. You reap what you sow. Did you ever stop to think that one day the power elites, egged on by angry mobs, might have your particular demographic in their cross hairs? What will you do then?
