Thrill kill? Alex Hinton, distinguished professor of anthropology at Rutgers University
For millennia, poets and philosophers have puzzled over the nature of love and why people succumb to it but the exact opposite question, why do people hate and kill, may be even harder to answer. From the biblical fratricidal murder to the genocides of the 20th century, how well do we understand this urge to efface the other?
To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Alex Hinton, distinguished professor of anthropology at Rutgers University, UNESCO chair on genocide prevention, and author of ‘It Can Happen Here: White Power and the Rising Threat of Genocide in the US’.
