Topic: Chapter 14
Adding my thoughts on this page. I posted this up in the blog but I think I'll use this thread to post my musings on pages in chapter 14. Will start a new thread for each chapter.

Chapter 14 page 7
One of the ways humans are able to justify being particularly revolting to others is to dehumanise them. Somehow pretending that your victim isn't on the same level as yourself somehow makes it alright to some people to do as they please to them. Animals don't wear clothing so if you take clothing away from someone it makes it easier to pretend they're not a person. The effect also works when you put them in a prison uniform or procedure gown.
On a similar note I can't wrap my head around someone who can work all day at a lab working on animal subjects and then go home and pet their dog. How does a mind justify itself doing that.
