What separates us from the monsters We read about people like Scott Peterson who killed his wife and his son and yet shows no News reports a student in Minnesota shooting nine He had been involved in a Nazi It is said that he talked about how Hitler was misun A woman is ordered by a judge to be starvedto We tell ourselves that these monsters are aberrations and hide behind terms of sociopaths or keeping us dis tanced from We need to ask how we got to this point Maybe the young man in Minnesota was cor rect we have misunderstood Hitler claimed his motives of power and conquest was to create
