It's been bugging me recently. Holocausts don’t begin with concentration camps they begin with the concentration of ideas . Brainwashing finds a majority of people in darkened alleyways with loaded guns looking for reasons to pull the trigger. Go ahead Muslim, make my day. In law in France Muslim women are instructed to wear certain clothes. Women who defy this law are being physically assaulted by members of the public who now feel emboldened. Belgium recently passed a similar law. As the far right rises across Europe the concentration of pressure on the Muslim community intensifies. We have been here before.
We are part of a process. The switch where community turns to genocide (as a solution) is psychological. Go Ahead Jew make my day. The assassination of German diplomat Ernst vom Rath by Herschel Grynszpan, was used by Hitler’s administation as a trigger. Ninety-one Jews were killed, 30,000 Jewish men—a quarter of all Jewish men in Germany—were taken to concentration camps. Around 1,668 synagogues were ransacked, and 267 set on fire. This raiding was known as The Nights of Breaking Glass – Kristallnacht. It is viewed by historians as part of Nazi Germany's broader racial policy and the beginning of the final solution and the holocaust. If genocide begins in the manipulated mind of the majority then how close are we to transferring from that into its next step – the physical act. Imprisonment and strange demands like those that dictate how a person should dress are just the beginning. Whichever way you dress where do you stand?
