That some of us want only to be left alone to live peacefully as we choose is quite beyond their ability to grasp. Of course, no one has claimed that

History, to them, isn't about learning from it to avoid repetition...it's about shame, and hiding it from the kids, or themselves so that it never

Social change isn't about learning about our neighbors while talking peacefully, it's about banning what ever it is you fear about them. Religion.
Hobbies. What ever it is. Nope. Outlaw it, and we'll all be safe. Well, safe from everything but you who fear.
It's all about fearing something. They're scared of something

calling her a different name.
In their fear, they would destroy everything Sam has built.
All because they're scared little children who can't abide the notion of different.
