With respect to Japanese internment, fear occasioned by the war led to widespread support for FDR's policy of internment. Many of the people interned were American citizens, some of whose relatives were actually serving in the U.S. Army. They were interned solely because of fears over their background and, ultimately, their appearance. In the the Chrysalids, the inhabitants of Labrador fret over even the least deviation in appearance, even among animals. Those who are different are banished or even killed. In today's society, at least in America, many politicians and other Americans demonize "others," with perhaps the most telling example being the recent fear-mongering surrounding "shariah law."
