When I was a child, I was very careful to learn how to escape quicksand, since it was portrayed as an ever-present danger in the media I watched.
I've seen quicksand exactly once in my life and somebody had put up a sign and a fence to help people avoid it.
I don't want to say I feel cheated, but I do wonder about the stories we tell children vs their real obstacles in life.
I'm going to take up a new career writing children's literature based on real situations:
_His Ethically Gray Materials_
_Larry Spotter and the Immutable Object Error on Line 347_
_Frog and Toad do a Funding Application_
_Mighty Morphing PackAndSave Rangers_
_Captain Planet and the Weekly Protest That Seems Worthwile But Is It Really Helping_
and then the same people who think the covid vaccine is going to turn them into communists guzzle down colloidal silver, and the same people who spread panic about 'drug addicts' pop adderrall like it's going out of style. the contradictions belong to the ideology: it makes it stronger, since someone willing to believe all of that simultaneously is impossible to reason with
ofc the 'this will kill a lot of minorities' aspect and the 'perpetual need to guard the integrity of the white body which is simultaneously conceived as omnipotent and incredibly fragile' aspect aren't contradictory: one serves the other, the same way being against (certain) drugs also enables the targeting of marginalised groups
we can see the same thing at work with how they approach drugs or even tattoos: if the integrity of the perfect white body is interfered with, this will destroy it's 'natural purity', the same way it endangers the (likewise organic) 'purity' of the race or the country
