Reader feedback: Don't blame others

Re: Anti-Semitism a hidden part of Slovak life, By Lukáš Fila, Feb 10 - 16, Vol 9, No 5

Racism is a zombie ghost that needs to be laid to rest once and for all. For God's sake people, this is the 21st century! People of low intelligence believe that some other group of people outside their little gathering create all the misery that they have to suffer.

Having a hard time in life? Accuse someone of witchcraft and have them burned at the stake. Grab a Jewish person and send them and all their families and friends off to a death camp to be exterminated. You can blame the Roma community for the rest of your suffering and delete them from the population too. But you know what's going to happen once all these people are eliminated and just "good" people are left? You are still going to suffer and have a miserable life because it's not them doing it to you. Life is full of bad times and suffering, but it's that way for everybody. You live in a dream world if you think that money buys happiness and other people are the cause of your suffering.
