There's a Japanese parable about a Japanese boy who was up on the slopes minding the rice fields when he saw in the distance a tsunami roaring towards his village.  He knew he had no chance of warning the villagers (and his family) in time, so he set fire to the rice fields, knowing everyone would run up to put out the fire, and thereby saving the village.

Well, yours truly certainly isn't a saint, but I know it's time to cry wolf that our country is now up to its neck in TOTAL WAR.

 

But I don't have any fire to light to snap people out of the illusion that things like politics and religion are the big picture for what's now happening in America.

 

But, thinking that is an act of suicide.

 

Maybe it's easier to see this theoretically.  Imagine there's a country which has group A and group B, and that group A is systematically committing genocide on group B, plus literally turning them into social slaves of group A.

 

They do this in a great variety of ways:
