Claims like this can rally peoples against the oppressed, and places the moral blame on the oppressed, often causing the oppressed to internalize this claim of wrongdoing....   [tags: Dehumanization, World History]

Each is closed by a brief image of a child being weaned, presumably a metaphor of the past story.
