Question 1 – What are dehumanization and moral exclusion? People sometimes see outgroups as dehumanized or morally excluded. What evidence supports that case? How are these concepts related to genocide? for the second part of this question, use the fMRI example (Harris and Fiske 2006) for dehumanization, then one example of dehumanization from the Smith 2011 ch5 reading that is attached, and one example of moral exclusion from the Smith 2011 ch5 reading. Most of Smith’s article is saying we conceptualize people in these ways as dehumanized and as morally excluded and when we do that it makes it easier for us to commit genocide. What evidence do we have in order for you to make the case that dehumanization and moral exclusion leads to genocide we first have to demonstrate that we are dehumanizing and moral exclusion. A starting point for the third part is that these concepts devalue others and make genocide more morally acceptable.
