Chapter 12-13: Hitler and Teresa, Four Year Sentence

In the chapter on Hitler and Mother Teresa, we look for the evil within ourselves, and the goodness in others. We have a monster within us. Is this a helpful perspective, when we are in dialogue with others?

Cubism becomes the model for describing how we take apart other people and their worldviews with our arguments, and when we put them back together, we create monsters out of them in the same way cubism expresses different views of the object it represents from many different two-dimensional perspectives. These perspectives when pieced together create a monstrous image. What are your thoughts about this point in respect to how others have treated you? and likewise about how you have viewed other people, other religions, and other political views?
