Believers don't believe in facts

I find it hard to imagine there are people who would like to see other people being 'put away' simply because those other people are different. If I'd think they could read texts containing more than 140 characters I would urge them to read the story of the now 92 years old Ed Mosberg, who keeps the memory of the concentration camps very much alive:

The people who want to get rid of other people don't seem to be disturbed by facts and figures: what they read on Facebook gets into their heads and simply becomes their believes. The problem with believes is that it's virtually impossible to make people think their believes are not right.

Don't believe me? Try convincing an Apple addict that in many ways the operating system Android is superior. Good luck!
