“While they were lynching and beating innocents, they were secretly seeing themselves applauded and approved….”

“While they were lynching and beating innocents, they were secretly seeing themselves applauded and approved, finally, by their fathers and the daddy surrogates of their lives. Having been beaten down themselves, they saw themselves as finally right and okay when they brought themselves to then beat down others. They had become like daddy, and like society, wanted … finally they felt themselves safe and belonging.

“When you see anger all around you, and you have had it directed at you when you were young, you feel safe when you can deflect it to scapegoats. Your anger becomes, then, your protection from yourself being the target.

“When you allow yourself to forget the natural morality, inherent in everyone’s conscience, that pain inflicted is wrong, whereas that love, forgiveness, tolerance, mercy, and all the other things they claim of their god, is good, then you are capable of anything. And you are able to pat yourself on the back for atrocity…..”
