    Excellent episode. Think you hit some important points, but also think there are some underlying elements in something Roger said about growing up hating another group ‘just because’ that point to some other baseline concepts. We tend to want to blame others for our ‘lot in life’ (sometimes justified) especially when in a tough patch but it is easier to blame a group of others than point to one person. And things we are told or come to believe during our formidable years can take deep root and die hard. This also gets into people possibly wanting ‘you’ (other people) to do more than to just hear or understand but also taking steps (even if just retweeting or making statements) of support.
