I watched it again and still feel the same.

Tell me if I’m wrong—but what you mean by ‘the same’ is that Mr. Adler’s mistake, the consequences of which he should experience, is not an isolated mistake, but a symptom of this great sickness that seems to engulf us all.

The only remedy is to be vigilant and monitor ourselves in any way we can, so that we avoid seeing others as cartoon characters, impervious to pain, having no feelings, no point of view, no legitimate right to be treated in a fully human way.

I’m not at all minimizing this. This is the very problem that all humankind must overcome. To ignore the widespread nature of this problem, focusing only on Mr. Adler, that’s minimizing it. Stones, glass houses. That thing.

That’s what you mean, right?
