Nazis are not subhuman. Make no mistake. They are every bit as human as you or I. This is why they must be destroyed. Because they have just as much ability as you or I to not be nazis. They hold that capability, but instead they rationalize, justify and choose to be one every single day. They aren't less human than any of us. That is why they are so disgusting.

@Bashabez Yeah. I've noticed people have described others as "inhuman" for doing evil or cruel things, as if humans are intrisically good. But humans are not inherently good or bad: we are good or bad by choice.

@Zauberin @Bashabez recognizing this, i’ve opted toward “humane” and “inhumane” as they have a more aspirational, less inherent tone. we can choose to be humane, as they choose to be inhumane.

@Bashabez well said. It's crazy how easily people will dehumanize unsavory/horrible/evil people for their own sake.

@Bashabez tbh its a pet peeve of mine when people try to dehumanize awful people. Especially at the expense of mentally ill people. It just prevents reflecting on yourself by implying no one like yourself could ever fall in that trap.

@Bashabez you’re right. 100% - and we see people who have flipped over into being a more humane person and dropping the Nazi crap. But I’ve been thinking about this:

Let’s say a kid is brought up as a Nazi. Parents voted Trump, brainwashed him with mindless racist attitudes, etc. At what age can we hold them responsible for themselves? I don’t have a definitive answer but I had been thinking about it. Cheers mate
