I feel as though many people want to feel the signs of their own existence and so they search for the reflected evidence of that. As information is more collective in certain areas, it becomes more difficult for conflicting ideals to see eye to eye.
I agree, that even calling into question the validity of standard narratives, a standard human thing to do overall, is seen as a danger. But that brings up the matter of wanting to exist. Their safety is cannot be broken by questioning its foundation. What makes this drive to exist force out the existence of others? Should others be driven by their world view that to see others wish to exist all the same? Or is their view marred see that only they remain as the sole victor?
