    What is the relationship between prejudice, segregation, dehumanization, marginalization, &

    eventually annihilation/genocide?

    I just heard a discussion on NPR about the infamous Milgram experiment conducted in 1961 about people's willingness to obey authority against their conscience.  It stated that 65% of people do this.  Prejudice is learned behavior; a lot of people are taught this when they're too young to reason for themselves, and when they get older, they don't question it.  Once that is in place, it is easier to lead them to segregate others, and eventually commit atrocities.
    It occurred to me this is how cults work.  The cult leaders claim they are acting on the orders of a Cosmic Deity, and those that don't obey will be punished in the afterlife, when they have no control over their circumstances.
    Hm, interesting...
