Going back to Biblical times and crossing times, the scapegoat crystallizes a factor of division and hatred in most societies. While it refers to a sense of belonging and homogeneity among the members of the persecutory group, it reflects the uneasiness of a community fearing any change that could disrupt the established order. History is teeming with examples of this kind. And this type of behavior is at the source of the greatest massacres of human civilization.
In French, free entry.
