199: Dividing lines

Xenophobia is a fear of people from other countries.

Is it because they talk differently, or because they might be better than you?

  • The metric is care: If they care more than you do, you have every reason to be afraid. They’ll take your job and that’ll be that.
  • It goes both ways: If you care more than those around you are prepared to, they should fear you regardless of where they’re from.

The dividing lines are in the wrong place: it’s not what patch of grass you were born on that separates you from others. It’s how much you’re willing to try.
