Leni Farrer on the Untrusteds and Scapegoating

I, for one, do not object to anyones God as long as belief in that God does not “tell them” to attack others. How is it possible for any one system to be wholly good? We live in a world of opposites. It seems to me that the struggle towards self growth and development is to recognise the opposites (the shadow if you like) within ourselves and learn to understand them in ourselves and others. Projection, or external scapegoating, can confer a very dangerous form of self righteousness on those who indulge in it.
