Dividing the World in order to Save It

I’ve heard preachers do it. They’ll define an enemy and then work to ‘save’ the people from it. I see so many of our politicians do it (as well as our divider-in-chief in the White House).

They say it’s the devil’s favorite tactic. Divide people from each other - and they will feel much better, ‘safer’, superior (or inferior).  

Take, for example, the debates about gun control. Personally I believe the statistics that demonstrate I’m much safer where I live in that I don’t own a gun. But I can appreciate some of those who argue otherwise. I don’t like the way the argument is dividing the world around the issue of saving it.
