People Hating People Essay

2772 words - 12 pages

“People who put principles before people are people who hate people. They don’t much care about how well it works, just about how right it is … they may even like it better if it inflicts enough pain” (John Barnes). People do not think too much of how their actions affect other human beings. They think making others feel less than who they are is completely ok, even with the level of National Security. It is not ok whatsoever. Instead of dehumanizing people and making them feel worthless and like animals National Security, and other humans, should treat people equally and not like objects, make them feel comfortable and not take away their rights because we are all human and all equal.
Although people feel as though they can just take away a person’s rights and identity because they feel they are more superior and important, they have no right to. “The three “veterans,” with needles in their hands, engraved a number on our left arms. I became A7713. After that I had no other name.”(Wiesel 39). Wiesel is talking about how his identity was just taken away from him. And how it was so easy to just become a number, and nothing but a number, so quickly. He had no other identity other than the one given to him when his original name was taken away from him. As a result, Mr. Wiesel and many other humans have and are being stripped of their identity and becoming, or have become, nothing but a number and an object. “‘There are eighty of you in this wagon,’ added the German officer. ‘If anyone is missing, you’ll all be shot, like dogs….’” (Wiesel 22). Mr. Wiesel is saying that the officers do not care about the prisoners at all. All they see the prisoners as are nothing but objects and dogs, and other animals, not human beings. Due to that, he is talking about how they were treated like nothing and like animals, and if they did anything wrong they would be shot because to the guards they were nothing.
Likewise, the National Security should treat others equally and fairly no matter what the situation is and no matter who the person is or what they have done. The international law suggests that humans should be treated justly and fairly with their dignity and with respect they deserve. They also deserve to have their basic needs met and to have freedom to make decisions. (Maiese, What it Means to Dehumanize) What this source was saying, or trying to say, is that people deserve and are given certain things like respect and dignity. It also states that the law says people need to be treated justly and fairly, even in a case involving National Security. Overall, no matter who the person is, or what they did, they are given and deserving of dignity, and sometimes respect, and they deserve to be treated equally, justly and fairly. “‘Throw out all the dead! All the corpses outside!’…‘Here’s one! Take him!’ they undressed him, the survivors avidly sharing out his clothes, then to “gravediggers” took him, one by the head and one by the feet, and threw him out the...
