Cultural Suppression

"The process of de-humanization is a three-phase cycle. First, this process involves defining a group of people (or an individual) as lacking any semblance of worthiness to, any similarity and any connection whatsoever with what was or is for the moment defined as "civilized," based on emotion and self-serving rationalization. Second, it entails following up with action and/or policy based on the previous definition. Third, it seeks to justify the first two phases with more self-serving rationalization."
