Whenever a party speaks of another party, most often they refer to exterme behaviors.
“Some religious persons do this very offending thing”.
“Some atheists do this very offending thing”.
“A few writers do this, which means that most writers do that”.
It’s very hard to get yourself out of the thinking that extreme behavior does not equal average.
We have it in our system – we look for the error, thinking that the average must follow the same rule. News flash – it doesn’t.
