Dolores Umbridge believed she was better than others. Assuming the Head of the Muggle-born Registration Commission, she reveled in “pathological tribalism.” This emerges when tribes experience cognitive biases and a polarized environment. It was her job to put “those people” in their proper place: beneath Pure Bloods. What can we learn from Dolores? How do we justify “evil” in our lives to demonize other groups? In what ways do we nurture our own egos to maintain a sense of being “better” than those beneath us? Can we cast a spell of critical thinking to see beyond our own perspectives?
