Morning students, I hope you are all well. I am feeling much better today, and am on the mend so hope to catch up with the forum posts I have missed. Many thanks to those of you who have kept the home fires burning!
During my convalescence, I watched a very interesting and disturbing documentary, "Don't F**k with Cats." Have you seen it? I do recommend it, although, as I say, it is disturbing...so be warned!
It's a three-part mini series about some internet sleuths who track down a budding serial killer. There is a very interesting exchange about "monsters" in episode one specifically, around the 30-35 minute mark. I don't want to give away any spoilers in case you haven't seen it yet, so watch it in context. It is a perfect example of exactly what we have been talking about over the last couple of weeks: the mimetic desire mechanism, leading to scapegoating and the process by which the monster-hunter becomes the monster (and the guy being interviewed says as much).
I think the show is on Netflix, but I am sure you all have your means and ways of finding things online if you want to watch it!
Feel free to share any insights, directly or indirectly related to the show!
