These are wise words. Now the most pertinent question is this: WillAmerica fall into the same trap as countless others, will we, as the current victim, become the equivalent to the « oppressed », exaggerate the qualities of the « oppressor » and rationalize indiscriminant violence in the name of « justice »? Will we become a « totalistic monster »?
I hope we take the high road.
