Do Not Allow The Political Elite To Divide Us!

This really got my attention, so I wanted to share it with anyone interested in history.

One of my friends told me about a powerful lesson in her daughter’s high 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.

THE NEW SALEM WITCH TRIALS

“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. Keep being welcoming, beautiful people. Shunning, scapegoating, and dividing destroys far more than they protect.

 

Can you look around presently and recognize the shunning and scapegoating of certain identified groups presently? How many Americans are being identified by association and assigned to a group by the News Media, Social Media Oligarchs, Political Party Leaders, Hollywood Celebrities, and Government Agencies? Who has been targeted by a carefully crafted negative narrative of “other.” or “threat?” MAGA supporters? Republicans? The Right-Wing? Fox News Viewers? Anti CRT Racists? Anti-Maskers? Anti- Vaxxers?

Do not allow the political elite to divide us. We must remain united against those who would do so.

What is Class?
==============

"Class never runs scared. It is sure-footed and confident in the
knowledge that you can meet life head on and handle whatever comes
along."

"Jacob had it. Esau didn't. Symbolically, we can look to Jacob's
wrestling match with the angel. Those who have class have wrestled
with their own personal angel and won a victory that marks them
thereafter."

"Class never makes excuses. It takes its lumps and learns from past
mistakes."

"Class is considerate of others. It knows that good manners are
nothing more than a series of small sacrifices."

"Class bespeaks an aristocracy that has nothing to do with ancestors
or money. The most affluent blueblood can be totally without class
while the descendant of a Welsh miner may ooze class from every pore."

"Class never tries to build itself up by tearing others down. Class is
already up and need not strive to look better by making others look
worse."

"Class can "walk with kings and keep its virtue and talk with crowds
and keep the common touch." Everyone is comfortable with the person
who has class because he is comfortable with himself."

"If you have class you don't need much of anything else. If you don't
have it, no matter what else you have, it doesn't make much
difference." ~Ann Landers

  1. I didn’t expect the conclusion of the teacher’s lesson and was surprised.
    The hysteria that took place in Salem so long ago has resurfaced and is now used in a different way by governments deliberately to manipulate, divide and subdue us.
    I see the stirring and manipulation of different forms of hysteria being used in the French and Russian Revolutions and by the Nazis.
    May logic and reason prevail before the current hysteria overwhelms us!

  2. Society keeps repeating the mistakes of the past, we must get involved in our children’s education in order to learn to evolve. I share the sentiment of focusing on what unite us, rather than on what separates us.
