Moriah Chapel, Kenfig Hill c. In there was a 6 month coal stike which was only brought to a halt when the miners were literally starved back to work. The game of Rugby Football proved a welcome respite from such problems and by the end of the 19th century it occupied in inductrial Wales the same position as Associated Football did in indutrial England.
A few years ago, I wrote: I want to avoid a very easy trap, which is saying that ingroups vs. Compare the Nazis to the German Jews and to the Japanese. The Nazis were very similar to the German Jews: The Nazis were totally different from the Japanese: But the Nazis and Japanese mostly got along pretty well.
Heck, the Nazis were actually moderately positively disposed to the Chinese, even when they were technically at war. So what makes an outgroup?
Proximity plus small differences. We think of groups close to us in Near Mode, judging them on their merits as useful allies or dangerous enemies.
We think of more distant groups in Far Mode — usually, we exoticize them. We exoticize fargroups, but we can also use them as props in our own local conflicts. We use sympathetic fargroups the same way. This is all as the theory would predict.
Last month I asked on Tumblr: I remember that when I was young and the Internet was young, people online were debating religion vs.
Whatever else you were trying to discuss, eventually it would turn into a religion vs. I remember spending a lot of time at talk. And I remember a lot of people who seemed to genuinely believe that religion was like the 1 problem in the world, maybe even the only problem in the world because it was the root cause of all of the others.
Now social justice vs. Has anybody else noticed this? I got a lot of responses. Other people confirmed this was a real phenomenon and that they remember it the same way.
The consensus explanation was that there was a moment in the 90s and early Bush administration when evangelical Christianity seemed to have a lot of political power, and secularists felt really threatened by it.
This caused a lot of fear and arguments. Then everyone mostly agreed Bush was terrible, studies came out showing religion was on the decline, evangelicalism became so politically irrelevant that even the Republicans started nominating Mormons and Donald Trump, and people stopped caring so much.
Now I see atheists sharing things like this: I think once Christianity stopped seeming threatening, Christians went from being an outgroup to being a fargroup, and were exoticized has having the same sort of vague inoffensive wisdom as Buddhists. I saw something that seemed very similar during my time interacting with movement atheists.
There was a split between people who were raised in fundamentalist families and very traumatized about it and who viewed Christianity as an outgroup, versus people who were raised in agnostic families and pretty live-and-let-live and who viewed Christianity as an fargroup.
I know it seems weird to say that movement atheists living in a majority-Christian country treated a religion they interacted with every day the same way the Yugoslavs treated Tibetans, and sure, they would make fun of them, but that was exactly it — they found religion funny — and even in the process of lightly mocking them they tried to avoid stepping on too many toes.
To the fundie-raised atheists it was real, it was a hot war, these people were monsters; to the secular-raised atheists, religious people were just kind of wacky in a problematic way, like the North Koreans, and nobody in America lives their life in a state of constant rage about how evil North Korea is.
And I think as the threat of movement fundamentalism declined, there was a shift among atheists from more emotional hostility to more of a live-and-let-live kind of attitude.
