Hannah Ardent was a Jew who escaped horrors of Holocaust.
Morals and evil are different.
Immoral = lying, adultery, murder
Totalitarian evil = absolute evil, strips victims of humanity
Made people think of them as less than human.
Banality of evil (coined phrase) = something everyday people do

George Katebs argued the existence of these values.

People find it easier to do evil when think of victim as not human.
Speciesism is discrimination based on species, 1970.

Common occurrence in Star Trek. Comic books.
