Blog: The Boogeymen - 2010-09-25
I had an epiphany the other night, which goes something like this:
"If someone is telling you who to hate or fear, they are trying to manipulate you."
It's like the boogeyman, invented by parents in earlier times to get their children to behave. "If you don't do as you're told, the boogeyman will get you." If you couldn't be bothered to appeal to a child's reason or good sense, you could scare them into doing what they're told.
