I've killed numerous animals, up close and personal with a knife to the throat. Pigs, goats, chickens (axe to the neck there). First few times was hard. But it gets easier. Chickens got to the point of total complacency. It was like stepping on roaches. Granted I was doing it for munchies. But still, an act of killing took place, it was messy, there were grunts, squeals, gurgles and overt signs of terror, most of them in the form of vocalizations and rampant physical struggling. There were strange smells that became ordinary, and strange organs that became as common and uninteresting as skin or eyes.
My point is, you don't need to be deranged or a psychopath to be trained to kill without mercy or second though. There is a process, and it works. The brain adapts, the killing gets done. All these deep hypotheticals are just mental masturbation. Anyone can potentially kill for any reason, just need some compelling motivation.
Of all things in the world, metaphysics requires the least amount of effort; as it is neither based on nor subjected to the test of objective reality, people can talk as much nonsense as they like. - Xi Jinping
