Luce, you over analyze me.
Abusers and psychopaths have no power to empathize with mankind. Their victims are mere things to use as they wish.
I use "soul" as an exemplar for this connection to humanity.
Larry, loved this! You've taken 3 short lines and described terrorism to a T. They really have no souls, I can't imagine anyone with a soul could possibly do the awful things these people do. Well done-
I believe that you can tell a lot about a person if you look into your eyes, their honesty, integrity, insecurity, dishonesty and also when the soul and life has left a person. Whether through traumatic experience or just because you never had one in the first place - just plain evil. Just a few words but insightful and spot on Milly x
