Bertrand Russell, writing in 1938:
“At the time of the Tokyo earthquake, the inhabitants of that city turned upon the Koreans living there and massacred them, not because they supposed these harmless folk had caused the disaster, but because terror and misery made them wish to massacre somebody. We and the French spread terror and misery throughout Germany in the years after the armistice; they could not massacre us, so they turned upon the Jews. It was a gesture of insanity; but if, as I firmly believe, terror and misery caused the insanity, it will not be cured by a further dose of the same poison.”
Same goes for Iraq/Afghanistan in the wake of 9/11, same goes for Palestine. Same goes for Wriggles whenever he sees another dog.
