In all propaganda, the face of the enemy is designed to provide a focus for our hatred. He is the other. The outsider. The alien. The enemy is not human. If we can only kill him, we will be rid of all within and without ourselves that is evil. How are these faces of the enemy created? Why is the repertoire of images so universal? (Faces of the Enemy: Reflections of the Hostile Imagination, 16).
What “enemies” do you need to reconsider today? How might you see an enemy as human, as a child of God?
