The inadequate philosophical education made itself felt with particular force in our country in the sixties, when our “thinking realists”, having established the cult of natural science, began cruelly to persecute philosophical “metaphysics”.
Недостаток философского развития с особенною силою сказался у нас в шестидесятых годах, когда наши «мыслящие реалисты», создавши культ естественных наук, открыли жестокое гонение на философскую «метафизику».

Dostoevsky, Fyodor
The point is not only that hatred is I diverted from those who are guilty (the capos were more hated than the I SS), but that the distinguishing line between persecutor and persecuted, between the murderer and his victim, is constantly blurred.
Дело не только в том, что ненависть переносится с виновных на других (caps ненавидели больше, чем СС), но и в том, что пограничная линия между преследователем и преследуемым, между убийцей и его жертвой постоянно стирается.

He had just been deprived of a small employment, on which he subsisted; and he was persecuted by the preachers of Surinam, who took him for a Socinian.
Он лишился скромной должности, которая давала ему средства к жизни, и суринамские проповедники преследовали его за социнианство.
