“The moron who states that prejudice is a simple dislike, is same in the belief that soldiers warring with one another, from nation to nation, simply ‘dislike’ one another. How could a soldier simply dislike his enemy, over fearing them? Fear is a refinement tool. It tempers any individual to comprehend certain wisdom. Whether to trust or to distrust, makes either the courageous or fearful individual. No one neutrally dislikes, without prior experience to what is disliked. By that prior experience, a person is fearful of outcomes to what is embraced, gotten close to, of whatever is cast off into distance. Their distrust, their dislike, resonates in fear of outcomes to being close to whatever is kept at a distance.
One cannot neutrally dislike what is given that reproach, without being occasionally reminded on its existence. What forms prejudice in this world is the distance. Such distance always pertains to the fear in never being close. For the only reason to not be close, is in the fear of seeing something one does not wish to know.”– Modern Romanticism
