Jewish settlers burn, destroy Church on the banks of the Galilee
A nice building I once posted on, alas.
What a choice: the crazy Palestinians or the arrogant Sabras?
"We all worship the same God." A useless phrase, even if it were true.
The most protracted battles are often between those with the most in
common: Sunni/Shia, Catholic/Protestant...Dominican/Jesuit.
Whether it's actual religion or faux-religion (like Lefty or White
Right politics), the enemy is attacked because they are Aliens.
The brethren are attacked because they are Heretics and Traitors.
It's human nature.
I don't understand why so many people want to play make-believe
about so many things, that somehow denying the unpleasant and
chanting, "Let's all play nice" will make a difference in the structure
of nature. There must be a lot of Enneagram Nines in the world.
In the evil White Nationalist novels of Harold Covington, there's a character,
a rural White man, tough old bird, who, even after the successful revolution
which establishes a safe White country just a mile from his home, and even after
the United States has degenerated into something all too imaginably worse*
than it is today, still refuses to switch sides, because the new Whites are "racist."
Likely an Enneagram One. (They're the ones I find most insufferable.)
His brain and soul have been incurably infected
with the Equality retrovirus, so that no matter what his lying eyes tell him,
over and over, he keeps repeating the mantras to himself.
*Covington just takes a lot of contemporary ideas and plays them out to
their horrific logical conclusions. Ask yourself how many times you've heard
someone say, "Oh, that's ridiculous. That would never happen." and then
voila! Ten-ish years later, it's The New Normal. Look how fast we went
from Guess Who's Coming to Dinner to Kim and Kanye? In a highly
mobile and tech-drenched society like ours, things fall apart really fast.
