It’s hard to know exactly what to say about it in all honesty, it’s worth reading in its entirety. And I think it’s very important that we not forget that othering people as “monsters” when they do harm actually doesn’t help, it just makes us feel better about not being one of them while sweeping the systemic factors that actually contribute to violence, etc, under the rug.
