It’s so frustrating when you’re like the only person who can see how evil and sneaky someone is and everyone else is like blind to it
yeah, that is pretty frustrating. but i’d like to expand on this.
there was a point in history when one man felt like there was a group of evil sneaky people who were responsible for the collapse of his nation. and wrote a book providing what seemed to be evidence of this.
his name was hitler.
then later in world war 2, the brits and the americans saw what had become of the Jews and villanized the nazis for being evil.
the brits then participated in the air raids that killed about 600 thousand innocent german men, women, and children.
as the americans dropped atomic bombs in hiroshima and nagasaki.
the japanese saw us as evil.
as they killed, tortured, and raped the countries they had “imperialized.”
china, one of japan’s victims, would years after, be responsible for the deaths of their own citizens running over college students with tanks in tienanmen square.
moral of this unnecessarily over-dramatic analogy?
if you are unable to see even a slight glimmer of goodness in a person you deem as “evil and sneaky,” that’s when you need to start fearing for your own potential of evil.
the moment you begin to villanize a person, is the moment you dehumanize them. the moment YOU dehumanize them, is the moment a seed of evil can be sowed in yourself if the circumstances are right.
always be cautious.
