Why The Fear?
Last updated 10/11/2021 at 2:40pm
I’ve read several letters recently that discuss the fear behind the “Great Replacement” fixation. The fear is described as white people fearing losing jobs, becoming irrelevant, losing status, losing, losing because minorities are going to take away everything. The idea of the Great Replacement has been around for a long time. The feared replacement has never really happened.
In psychology the concept of Projection (in very simplistic terms) has to do with putting onto other people what you don’t want to admit about yourself and then hating/demeaning/belittling/harming them.
