There’s an excellent article in the Nov. 27 New Yorker by Paul Bloom called “Beastly” about the theory that killers “dehumanize” their victims so they can exterminate them. Not true, says Bloom. The opposite is true, that the very fact of the victim’s humanity contributes to their death. Let’s face it, humans have no limits with their cruelty to one another and it’s being highlighted every day. Just watch the news.
