‘Religious Freedom” = simple supremacism.

This has been evident for quite awhile now.

I suspect the bottom line is that people value freedom for themselves most, then come the people like them. After that is everybody else, order determined by how different/scary they are perceived to be.

We are, at our hearts (or maybe brain stems, very tribal in outlook.)

re: #3 calochortus

Yes, unfortunately our brains haven’t evolved at the same rate as our ability to reproduce and effect technological change. We have the ability to overcome our flawed thinking & knee-jerk reactions, but too many of us simply can’t be bothered.

We’ve created a very complex & crowded world for ourselves and we’re going to cause our own extinction one of these days if we don’t get with the program.
