    Letter to Mr McCain

    Dear sir,
    I am writting to you, to ask you to make amends and to refrain from similar comments in the future. Monkeys have done nothing to you to deserve such comparisons. In fact monkeys have been the object of derision for too long and also the subject of cruel treament through the entertainment and medical industries. They should be treated better and they not be dragged unwillingly into world politics. Monkeys have their own problems and are not really interested in their human cousins world domination endeavors. They would prefer to be left alone in their trees to take care of their progeny, without having to bring about potential lawsuits in order to protect their reputation. But if this warning shall not be heeded, the legal option will be in effect inevitable.
    Thank you for your consideration and swift renounciation of your previous comments

    PS Christians and Jews have been consistently called "pigs and monkeys" by the Muslims, so you should consider yourself in good company.

    Dehumanization, based on ignorant stereotypes, paves the way to war. Who gains when Muslims and Christians are killing each other? Who gains from these ceaseless wars? The cynical war promoters make out like bandits, while the rest of us lose -- lose our lives, our economic stability, and our rights. This must end. .... The way to end it is with RE-humanization: Start treating our neighbors as fellow human beings. Stop filtering out everything positive. Acquire a more balanced, less cynical view of the world. .... Iran has not attacked anyone in 300 years. Granted, Iran is competing with the U.S. -- in foreign policy, in alternative energy sources (wind, solar, nuclear power), and now in space. But competition is not something we Americans need to fear. Competition helps to keep both sides honest.
