Xenophobia is defined as the fear of a stranger…

by bwardell on January 27, 2011

When asked what he (David Sabine, Ph.d.,) would do with the CyberHood Watch Magic Wand… he paused for a few moments and gave us one of the most poignant answers we have ever had in 3 years of CHWR live shows, and over 225 CHWR guests!

timestamp: 59:00 min mark ~ He said;

“I would cure one illness, Xenophobia is defined as the fear of a stranger… and his hope was that we as community, country and a human race, could cross all racial lines barriers and genders, etc… if we (in a community there are not strangers) could and would fix this one thing, the world be such a better place!! Again, David says with my wand I would banish Xenophobia, from the face of the planet.”

Description: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Xenophobia is defined as the “hatred or fear of foreigners or strangers or of their politics or culture”. It comes from the Greek words ξένος (xenos), meaning “stranger,” “foreigner” and φόβος (phobos), meaning “fear.”

Xenophobia can manifest itself in many ways involving the relations and perceptions of an ingroup towards an outgroup, including a fear of losing identity, suspicion of its activities, aggression, and desire to eliminate its presence to secure a presumed purity. Xenophobia can also be exhibited in the form of an “uncritical exaltation of another culture” in which a culture is ascribed “an unreal, stereotyped and exotic quality”.



Dictionary definitions of xenophobia include: deep-rooted antipathy towards foreigners (Oxford English Dictionary; OED), unreasonable fear or hatred of the unfamiliar, especially people of other races (Webster’s)

The Dictionary of Psychology defines it as “a fear of strangers”. As defined by the OED, it can mean a fear of or aversion to, not only persons from other countries, but other cultures, subcultures and subsets of belief systems; in short, anyone who meets any list of criteria about their origin, religion, personal beliefs, habits, language, orientations, or any other criteria. While some will state that the “target” group is a set of persons not accepted by the society, in reality only the phobic person need hold the belief that the target group is not (or should not be) accepted by society. While the phobic person is aware of the aversion (even hatred) of the target group, they may not identify it or accept it as a fear.

A clinical definition is: An irrational fear of members of a certain race foreign to one’s own, often adjunct and secondary to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Also: One of the attitude groupings characteristic of The Authoritarian Personality. A Vietnam veteran witnessed members of the Viet Cong skinning his fellow soldiers alive. He developed hatred of people with Mongol eyelids. In both cases, the xenophobia was adjunct to PTSD.
