People can say this is the 21st century. We are more connected (i.e. globalized) than ever. And more educated and enlightened? But the fact is nationalism is on the rise across the globe.

Susan Sontag ~ "10 percent of any population is cruel, no matter what, and that 10 percent is merciful, no matter what, and that the remaining 80 percent could be moved in either direction"

The majority will be easily swayed by mob sentiment. It is those in leadership (minority in number) that will either make or break the bough.
