It's more than that - it goes to down to the evolutionary level for survival of your genes vs. those of anyone elses.

This expands Self > family unit > extended family > . . . > city > nation.

WE vs NOT WE

So, give people someone to blame for their problems - someone from the a Not-We group. It goes back as far as blaming the Jews for the Black Plague right on up to people, in today's world, not living the lives they see on TV. It has to be someone's fault - things just weren't fair.

Who, after all, doesn't like to have a scapegoat?

Straw Poll

Have you ever taught anyone to code?
"Teaching" can mean from start to finish, or simply just helping someone learning to code work through a coding issue (like helping with homework or being a support tutor)
And how did it go?
