Morality play

Morality is fine if it is about your own behavior but as soon as it is someone else who you think is immoral, you are using the same plot of every situation where mass killing has occurred. The three-act play plot of the story is as follows: 1) some group of people is declared to be immoral 2) attempts are made to prevent these people from spreading their ideas or practices 3) due to the failure of their attempts to change these people, they feel it is morally acceptable to harm, deport, kill, etc these people. If you think someone is being immoral... you are already an actor in the movie that ends in genocide or the like. I was going to use the Nazis as an example but I think what I wrote is clear enough that I don't have to show that your attempts to control someone else is exactly what the Germans did before or during the Nazi regimen.
