Boxes For People

I just read a blog post that made me (as the internet puts it) "temporarily lose hope in humanity." I'm sure there is an Upworthy video that will restore it at some point. But the article went like this. Someone did something terrible to me. This person was/believed X and therefore what this person did applies to all people who are/believe X.

But it doesn't really matter who or what belief system the argument was about; the writer was building plastic boxes for plastic people–the sort of boxes that are miserably difficult for us children to open.
