5. De aquerdo! Deliberately avoiding the polution of emotion ...

... is the morally right and self-protectively appropriate choice as a human.
If I indulge (by choice and open eyes) to see the horror, gore, and blood of inhumanity, I am right there along-side the perpetrator of horror.

Appropriate knowledge of wrongs (evil) done is sufficient for acting, condemning, fighting the evil.
It does not profit anyone to deeply, emotionally, viscerally experience horror and terror.
It does not profit anyone to choose a side and accept the utter destruction of the other.

Choosing to watch what happened is quite different from being a victim.
Those who are slaughtered go to heavens, those who watch live in hells.

And for those who need to be told what is revealed between the lines, it does not profit anyone to attack anyone at any age for any reason at any time over any cause anywhere.
Sadly the sacrifice of thee for the sense of "Me" is a universal poison.
