But the Rest is Always Silence
Why is offering empathy to others seen as a zero-sum game? Why do we need to categorize those who don't resemble us as the "enemy"? Why do need enemies at all?
I'm currently majoring in psychology, working on a horror story I hope to publish someday and tend to write poetry every now and then. I've pretty much always written poetry as it was my first chosen medium. I'm hoping to get some recognition mainly for the poems I write but if possible, I'd like to attract some readers to the horror novel I'm working on.
Hate to keep harping on this but here's another example that illustrates the point in my earlier post. Humor is more than just light entertainment, it represents the zeitgeist of our times and when intolerance is the new "common sense", the way is paved for many terrible things. Just ask the neo-Nazi's who are PewDiePie's newest fans. Link: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/feb/15/youtube-pewdiepie-thinks-death-to-all-jews-joke-laughing-yet
