An innocent murderer is one who kills and humiliates human beings on account of a Weltanschauung. On this basis, he denies his victims any human dignity. The «secret» of persecution is this presence of both good conscience and willingness to kill and degrade. Most persecutors are driven by a paradoxical «silence», chosing a public and repeated narration which becomes their Truth. It is, however, useless to contrast it with another Truth, different but closed as well. A limit of persecution lies rather in the individual feeling of horror before suffering, in the choice of refusing the crimes, a disobedience which is in itself already a statement of value.
