The dehumanization of the Unvaccinated

              The Dehumanization of the Unvaccinated                                        I have recently seen a new radical attitude of hostility against Unvaccinated Americans. With President Biden setting the precedent. I was surprised by Joe Biden's latest speech where he tells unvaccinated Americans that his patience is waning thin. I have never heard a President address American people with such sustain.      In my career, my specialty is to study Behavior so I had to think of the deeper meaning behind this. I could be wrong but my conclusion is this is a start of a process to dehumanize unvaccinated Americans.      There was absolutely no compassion or positively motivated unvaxxed Americans to get vaccinated but it was filled with shaming and threats. I did some research on people dehumanize others and I found an uncanny resemblance of the 4 step plan and what is going on.    1.

                             Who Are You?                 Rise of Sky Walker Reflections             I just got done from seeing Star Wars, Rise of Sky Walker.

Honestly any movie would seem like a Oscar nomination after seeing that. I am glad that I had such low expectations because by the end of Rise of the Sky walker I loved it.                  People just didn't give this movie bad reviews and were disappointed, they were actually mad. My son was not impressed wi

       When Hate Speech is OK in America           In are current cancel culture, people get fired from saying insensitive words and shows are cut from TV. Kevin Hart was not allowed to host the Oscars because of past insensitive jokes. There is a group that the culture could care less about offending them. That is Christians.             If this society is going to have Tolerance as their standard for everything, their should really be tolerance for every one and not a select people.  I will give you an example for something that happened recently that really upset me and what upset me most was the Double standard that our society has. That they do not care about offending certain groups of people. Just recently Netflix their "Christmas Special"  about changing the Biblical Story of Jesus, and saying that he was lived A Queer Lifestyle and that his mother Mary was a Pot smoker.  This tears me apart inside and I am VERY offended!  Now if Netflix turned Muhammad
