Of course. But that's no excuse. It is necessary to pose the victem as the
"other" to dehumanize her.
The favorite "others" have women and jews. We find it difficult to operate on
what we identify with. So we need to operate on the distinguishably different
to createthe necessary distance of safety. Then we
can act with impunity.
It does not need to be a "sick" mentality. To say that all evil done is done
by sick people iI from It.
