    My daughter is going to grow up in an environment where a couple times a year she's going to be instructed to cower in the dark and hope the monsters don't see her. Because there are douchebags who vote who are so afraid of the unknown that they need an AR-15 to cuddle.

What is it then that makes the latter not see that there's something inherently wrong with the former? Is it really that hard to grasp the concept of powerlessness when you're in a position of unreasonably strong power?

Often times they are the very kind of people who feel powerless so they need to grasp onto anything that gives them a semblance of power, kind of like eating disorders and control I guess.
