"One of the most dispiriting questions I have encountered in my research
is whether the affinity people have for their own groups — whether those
groups are defined by some attribute (nationality, ethnicity, or
religion) or by a social connection (friends or teammates) — must
necessarily be coupled with wariness or rejection of others. Can you
love your own group without hating everyone else?
The news is not all bad. Human nature contains much that is admirable,
including the capacity for love, friendship, cooperation, and learning,
all of which allows us to form good societies and fosters understanding
among people everywhere."
