(Anonymous) @ 04:06 am: Can it really be so hard for writers to understand that supporters of slavery and genocide could rationalize their own actions in the same way?

They ought to try reading some of the arguments for bonded labor in Pakistan, such as those featured in the interviews of slaveholders found in the analysis of modern slavery in Kevin Bales' book Disposable People: New Slavery in the Global Economy. "It's for their own good" is one of the most difficult-to-disprove logics, as it's usually based on stereotypes and racial/religious/class profiling, and yet one of the most common.
