Hatred Never Ceases Through Hatred

If what we object to in Nazis is that they dehumanize others and commit acts of violence on that basis, then subjecting Nazis to dehumanization and violence in response solves absolutely nothing. You’ve given way to the thing you despise, and lent your force to the maelstrom of violence that perpetually threatens to engulf us all.

And really, this is the sickness that lies at the heart of all injustice: the reduction of human beings to a faceless Them, deserving only abuse, and the violence that follows upon that separation. This is what we should reject, in the sure knowledge that we are all connected, we are all fundamentally alike, and we are all deserving of compassion.
