This is a comment by KKZ on the post “Men and Goodness“.
“It’s important to note that even men who have committed terrible acts are still human. This is something i struggled with internally while reading that series. I felt anger and hate towards some of the people described, but I also felt pity and compassion. Some people are monstrous or have committed monstrous acts, but they are not monsters, they are still human. Compassion is not the same as forgiveness, or apology, or justification. And I think when we refuse to offer compassion and refuse to see the human in the monster, we all suffer for it.”
