this refusal to see the us in them and the them in what we take to be us.. such failure of imagination is seen in every realm.. from personal relationships to international politics.. simply put.. *it reflects that clinging to identity with group of any dimension narrower than all of humanity.. there must be others who by defn do not belong .. and we may believe .. at least unconsciously.. that we are superior

us/them.. marsh label law.. identity

*nationality: human

10 min – it’s a question of what we id with.. the word identify comes from the latin phrase – to make the same as.. so if i id strictly as a hunagrian.. that already creates an exclusion w everybody who is not hungarian..  so identifications create the *boundaries in which we live our lives..

siddiqi border law

but what is the fundamental reality..? the fundamental reality is that we are all human beings.. and we basically all have the same needs.. your fundamental needs are human needs you share w every other human on earth

all – nationality: human with maté basic needs

9 min – while group id’s are useful as long as we recognize they are fluid/temp/arbitrary.. and they are not who we are
