» SYNOPSIS:

[EN] ¿What happens when you want to wipe out an entire population? First, turn them vulnerable in the social sphere; second, demonstrate their lack of certain “human characteristics” in order to run them down based on that lack of “attributes and qualities”. And finally, transform its elimination into a moral action.

The conditions, the time, the distance, the journeys, the human supremacy above other species.

[ES] ¿Qué ocurre cuando se quiere eliminar a una población? Primero, se la vuelve vulnerable en el plano social; segundo, se demuestra que carece de ciertas «características humanas» para denigrarla a partir de esta falta de «atributos» y «cualidades», y finalmente se termina haciendo moral el hecho de eliminarla.

Las condiciones, el tiempo, las distancias, los trayectos; la supremacía humana sobre las otras especies.
