People

Every human who is an advocate of friction, every rouser of anger, every spewer of hate, every taker of another’s life, every taker of many others’ lives, every caller for mass death, every brutal dictator, every generally unpleasant person is still a human. And all of their actions are those chosen by a human mind, built upon by human experiences and guided by human emotions. When we say that an action is not human when a human clearly executed it, at best we are weakly denying to ourselves the reality that in fact a human has just executed the said act, and at worst we are choosing to be blind to the question of how this thing we call civilization and admire and cherish so deeply happens to harbor, breed, and produce such people, not once, not several times, but time and time again.
