Yeah, but I'm not all that sure about that. I mean, judging from the sheer number of people who've committed the most horrendously creative acts with one or more fellow human beings, I'm tempted to think that the capability is in all of us. That is, if we don't watch ourselves, circumstances might just put us in the position where the barriers go down. Like, I'm sure what was going through the minds of those soldiers was the sight of several buddies toppling over, their heads turned to bloody pulp by a sniper bullet. But afterwards, when circumstances change again. Yea.
