I find the mere existence of “Ethno-religious” groups to be tragic:

ESPECIALLY given the (widespread) tendency for religious groups to ostracize, persecute, brutalize and/or murder over (so-called) “heretics”, “apostates” or “unbelievers”.

To the extent that mere “geography” is the greatest single predictor of religious “belief”: the above-linked atrocities amount to the persecution of consciousness as such.
