Demonization: A Form Of Persecution

1

Demonization (or Diabolization in some cases) is a psychological or socio- psychological act of labelling or making an individual or group of people look like walking relics of evil. It's a form of HATE SPEECH which is aimed at causing a particular individual ( in some cases groups of people) get perceived as some sort of public enemy that should constantly be ridiculed, mistreated, harmed, shamed, scorned, attacked, disrespected, deliberately disfavoured etc The Truth is most negative information spilled out about the individual or group of people are EXAGGERATED deliberately to evoke mistrust and hate for thr target. Demonization is used often in politics, and in the market place to contend against rivals. The truth is; the person being demonized may not at all be as bad as they say he/she is. How to deal with Demonization: (1.) Do not be too quick to believe every negative things said about a person or group of people, (2.) Always hear both sides of a story or argument before making conclusions, (3.) Know that everyone has good in them to offer to the world and should be given a chance to express their good side, (4.) Investigate every rumors thoroughly without rushing into conclusions, (5.) Do not judge people by their past. If a person was once bad but shows genuine gestures or signs that they want to be better, give them the chance to be, (6.) Don't judge persons or people, only God can do that. We just finished talking about DEMONIZATION. What is the opposite of Demonization? The same rules apply. Some bad folks get ANGELIZED while some good folks get demonized. Be Wise and rise from crowd mentality.
