    During the past two decades in Russia, there seem to be an increase in the number of nationalistic and neo-Nazi groups.   These groups are targetting Jews, Africans or other Blacks,  Georgians, Chechens, Tartars, and other non-Caucasian, non-Slavic nationalities.    There were instances which one mother, a Chechen, lost her husband to a brutal attack by Russian and/or other Slavic neo-nationalistic groups.   The reason why it is quite ironic that Russians and other Slavic groups are neo-Nazis is that according to the Nazi philosophy, Slavic peoples were considered to be inferior as Jews were.   Furthermore, when the Nazi Germans involved Russia in World War II, they conducted a war which subjected the population to barbarity which was more harsh and differential than the invaded populations in Western Europe.     Please join the discussion.

      I think the real issue is not which group is enslaving, torturing, belittling, or whatever another group. I think the real question is why so many people have a need to do these things. It starts with the individual.

        The premise of many of these people is that they feel lost.   Either they are unemployed and/or have slipped through the socioeconomic bottomless pit with little or no hope of  ever improving.   They further believe that their way of life is either slowly eroding or being destroyed.   They believe that they have nothing left.   As a result of this perception, they lash out at other people, especially those who they deem to be threatened by.

          Which is why we need to design a system where the playing field is level. This does not mean that everybody gets paid equally, regardless of what quality of work they do. It means that people are rewarded equally for equivalent quality and quantity of work through the legislation of law that is fair. It means that there is a fair ratio for greater and lesser reward. It means that governments do the work they are paid to do, and that government aren't involved in ideology or ego.
