you make an excellent point. you have just identified the division between human and monster.
a human has values, morales, compassion, and virtues. he will feel remorseful when hurting someone else and she will feel wonderful when promoting
a monster has values, virtues, and strength. no emotions. all reptilian-brain thinking takes place within a monster. the higher brain-functions are
inoperative or nonexistent within such a monster. with a foundation based on aggression and repitition, the monster can kill 10 people or even 1,000
without shedding a single tear.
to the monster, the deaths, so long as they were towards a cause that would fortify the position of the monster, would only serve to increase its
internally-derived power and desire to be the highest within its own hierarchy. to them, nothing else matters. not even life itself.
don't be a monster. have your emotions and use them wisely, please
