Why Have We Gone From Love Thy Neighbor to Fear Thy Neighbor

Can you tell me whatever
Happened to love thy neighbor
To treating others
The way you would
Want to be treated
To putting yourself
In others shoes
To feel what they felt
Why do we hide

In fear of our neighbors
Because we don't understand them
Instead of opening our hearts to them
And learning from them
Like we know we should
Please tell me when and why
Society became so complient
To being sheep
Following those who have
Power so blindly
That they can no longer
Think for themselves
About pretty much anything
Its sickening
And believe me
My dear society
This will never
Describe me
