The Difference between Persecution and Being Corrected

http://robertcargill.com/2012/11/26/the-difference-between-persecution-and-being-corrected/

Quoting from the post:

There is a difference between persecution and the loss of privileged status.

There is a difference between persecution and being corrected of an error.

There is a difference between persecution and being wrong.

While persecution (especially religious and ethnic persecution) is very real… most in the American majority have never experienced real persecution. Childhood playground teasing aside, at most they’ve likely only experienced the loss of a previously held advantage.

But that doesn’t mean that the formerly privileged won’t pretend to be victims when they stop getting their way.
