Dehumanization is the root of all evil – it is a precondition to any impact


Katheryn D. Katz, Professor of Law at Albany Law School of Union University, 1997, “Article: The Clonal Child: Procreative Liberty And Asexual Reproduction”, Albany Law Journal of Science & Technology, 8 Alb. L.J. Sci. & Tech. 1, gender modified, acc. 3/27/13
It is undeniable that throughout human history dominant and oppressive groups have committed unspeakable wrongs against those viewed as inferior. Once a person (or a people) has been characterized as sub-human, there appears to have been no limit to the cruelty that was or will be visited upon him [them]. For example, in almost all wars, hatred towards the enemy was inspired to justify the killing and wounding by separating the enemy from the human race, by casting them as unworthy of human status. This same rationalization has supported: genocide, chattel slavery, racial segregation, economic exploitation, caste and class systems, coerced sterilization of social misfits and undesirables, n90 unprincipled medical experimentation, n91 the subjugation of women, and the social Darwinists' theory justifying indifference to the poverty and misery of others. n92 [*19]
