I got this off social media. It is a very powerful statement of fact as to how politicians and others try and divide us into whatever factions suit them. Factually none of us are seriously divided – we may have different ideas and opinions yet the civilized world exists quite well on unity alone. There are some who live on divide and conquer, they are the ones who need tossing out. Africans, Islamics and similar love to rule by hate alone.
A classic example in my life was for certain individuals to pit the Judiciary against me. This I recognised a long time ago and I played the game out, so did the Judiciary and the shit is hitting the fan. Please trust me, this is real.
One of my friends told me about a powerful lesson in her daughter’s school class recently. They’re learning about the Salem Witch Trials, and their teacher told them they were going to play a game.
“I’m going to come around and whisper to each of you whether you’re a witch or a regular person. Your goal is to build the largest group possible that does NOT have a witch in it. At the end, any group found to include a witch gets a failing grade.”
The teens dove into grilling each other. One fairly large group formed, but most of the students broke into small, exclusive groups, turning away anyone they thought gave off even a hint of guilt.
“Okay,” the teacher said. “You’ve got your groups. Time to find out which ones fail. All witches, please raise your hands.”
No one raised a hand.
The kids were confused and told the teacher he’d messed up the game. “Did I? Was anyone in Salem an actual witch? Or did everyone just believe what they’d been told?”
And that is how you teach kids how easy it is to divide a community.
Shunning, scapegoating and dividing destroys far more than they protect. There’s plenty of it going around.
Do not allow the political elite to divide and destroy us. We must remain united against those who would do so..‼️
