A dichotomy.

“Violence is an immoral, sick disease—when it’s done well. I am constantly intrigued that people, as well as being a highly advanced sentient mindspace, are also a collection of matter, blood, guts and sinew. I have a hard time marrying the two philosophically, so blowing people up plays with that dichotomy for me. Which is a real poncey way to justify explosions.”
