On Differences

“Fear acts very differently than love in that it will exaggerate differences.”

–Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy, The Christian Future (1946), p152.

I like this, though fear will also ignore differences to quell conflict and love can also honor difference. Can anyone square the circle for me?
