The Subjectivity of Conflicts
“Well of course, everything is subjective, once you get beyond the barest of facts. Imagine an immutable fact, a corpse lying on the floor, with a visible wound to the head. But the moment you call that corpse a victim, you begin to tell a story, and if you enlarge that to “victim of a senseless crime,” then you have the makings of a plot.”
