How to dehumanize other people

How do you get people to hate and kill their fellow man? Start with dehumanizing other people.

Follow the fascists playbook on how to dehumanize their victims with this EXPLAINER. See how Hitler, Putin, Netanyahu and Trump use dehumanization.

Should women and children migrants be allowed to drown if they try to escape violence?
Should thousands of kids be slaughtered and innocent hostages sacrificed for the sake of one man's political ambitions?

Dehumanization is a moral disengagement trick to get people to accept behaviors that they would otherwise immediately recognize as unethical and unfair. It redefines the targets of prejudice and violence by making them seem less human than other people. Fascists used it to justify their greed, violence, and abuse. Trump, Putin or Netanyahu dehumanize their victims with terms like “animals” and “infestation”. - Adapted from Psychology Today

Dehumanization lets us harm other people

"Thousands of years ago, humans would have felt a pang of anxiety when they saw the silhouette of a foreign tribe marching over a hill. We still have that anxiety inside of us today. Often “people’s spontaneous, knee-jerk reactions to other people who are dramatically different from them is negative,” says Susan Fiske, a psychologist at Princeton University and a leading expert on prejudice. This is especially true when we have quick, minimal exposure to them — as we do today via the media. These thin slices activate the us-versus-them conflict encoded in our minds since the dawn of humanity.

“Dehumanization doesn’t only occur in wartime,” says Nick Haslam, a psychologist who is the world’s current leading expert on the topic. “It’s happening right here, right now. And every day, good people who don’t see themselves as being prejudiced bigots are nevertheless falling prey to it.” - VOX

The 5 Steps of Dehumanization

In our day and age, shootings, hate crimes, and violence have become normalized, everyday occurrences. While some of these violent acts have no obvious motive, many are attributable to , and prejudice. Although the targets of this hatred may change over the years, there seems to always be some sort of mass prejudice against minorities held by majorities. One tactic that has been used throughout history is dehumanization, or the process of depriving an individual of human qualities. - Psychology Today

TakeAway: Don't fall for fascists dehumanizing other people and inciting violence so they can stay in power.
