Of attributes and qualities

What happens when you want to wipe out an entire population? First, turn them vulnerable in the social sphere; second, demonstrate their lack of certain “human characteristics” in order to run them down based on that lack of “attributes and qualities”. And finally, transform its elimination into a moral action. The conditions, the time, the distance, the journeys, the human supremacy above other species.
