You cannot actively and purposely divide a group of people and expect any kind of winning situation. There are those who think you can. They believe that if they separate out the ones they don’t understand or whom they think won’t support them and think like they think, that it will result in a good thing. It will not.
I can’t write well about this ideology because I do not understand it. I am in the midst of it at the moment and it boggles my mind what some people believe to be true. Or maybe they are pretending to believe it. Damned if I know.
