what's it called when an entire species has a variation of imposter syndrome where every individual member thinks they're one of a small group of outsiders but in actuality they're all part of the same group of social animals needing social interaction who all feel like that?

@djsundog racism, usually. In extreme cases, genocide.

Or, to quote Yoda, "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Angers leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”

And way is the feeling of being an outsider, if not fear? Fear for one's safety, fear of losing one's culture, fear of giving offence, fear of change, generally, etc.


ah, this reminds me of small town life ^_^

(I fucking hated small town life)
