When you start with a necessary evil, and then over time the necessity passes away, what’s left?
- Matthew Scully, Dominion: The Power of Man, the Suffering of Animals, and the Call to Mercy
The world is getting too small for both an Us and a Them. Us and Them have
become co-dependent, intertwined, fixed to one another. We have no
separate fates, but are bound together in one. And our fear of
one another is the only thing capable of our undoing.
To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.
