WRT 105-01 Project #2: A Critique of Crispin Sartwell’s “The Genocidal Killer in the Mirror” In “The Genocidal Killer in the Mirror”, Sartwell argues that average humans are evil. He supports this with the premise that average people are capable of genocide, based on the numerous acts of genocides and millions of average people who took part in them. He believes that humans share some common qualities that can be exploited to recruit a population for genocide, and the mere capability of such an act makes them “deeply evil”. Sartwell references several acts of genocide dating back up to 500 years ago, and notes that every act has come with the rise of a political state. The rising political authority exploits common human qualities in order to mobilize a population for genocide. Sartwell argues that it is qualities like compliance with authority, social conformity, and the desire for security that leave us vulnerable to genocidal recruitment.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
