Some years ago I was talking to a lady who happened to be from a particular ethnic
group which had had historical, and to a lesser extent, ongoing difficulties with
another dominant group. And she was saying how this other culture was terrible
because of all the evils and persecutions it had visited on others. And how her culture was superior because of its inherent values of humanity and compassion and so on. And I found myself pointing out that anyone can play that game. Where we compare our best with their worst, and & Surprise! We win!
