Watching ‘war’ [movie set in] Cechnya

We dehumanize all the time. Every group we look at as ‘not us’ is less human, and it has been commonplace that this results in decapitations, torture, etc. But think what it looks like on the other end.  Its bloody good sport and heroism and shit. Please, not the ‘war is bad’ platitude.  This is a cognitive problem. We need to learn to treat everyone as human. We can only do that if we align our concepts through interaction.

Internet is working well. Drop the definite article.
