It's amazing how many people have not yet internalized what Isaac Newton discovered centuries ago, that every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
It is almost as true in the social sphere as in physics.
And the English-speaking nations in particular have gone to extremes in persecuting a considerably larger portion of the population than they are willing to believe. It looks like they may be learning that the hard way because they have continually rejected all offers to learn the lesson in any of the easy ways.
I grieve for everyone caught up in these events.
