It’s important to acknowledge that everyone is harmed in different ways. The clearest harm comes to those who are marginalized, Othered, and who are the invisible classes of our world. But all of us are harmed in this system.
When you harm others, you have not only done an injustice to those you’ve harmed, but also an injustice to yourself.
