There once was a country that was due to host the next Winter Olympic Games. This nation had worked very hard to secure the games.
This nations leader saw it a matter of both national and personal pride. His nation was emerging from period of economic and political upheaval stemming from the collapse of its former imperial system and the resulting loss in prestige.
Less than a year out from those upcoming games, this nation passed a host of new laws which specifically targeted one minority group, painting a picture of this group as a threat to children, the nation, and society at large. the new laws stated:
- Marriages for members of this minority were forbidden.
- Sexual relations for members of this minority group were either restricted or forbidden.
- Members of this minority group could be fired from jobs for no reason other than for who they were.
- Members of this minority group were officially branded a security risk to the state.
As a result of these new laws being passed, groups of young thugs were reportedly emboldened into seeking out members of this minority group and harassing, beating and in some cases, torturing and even killing them.
