Humanistic and social justice values and ideas shape anti-oppressive practice (Healy, 2015).

According to Elie, the children of the Kapos were even more cruel and sociopathic, most of which seemed to have a disgustingly avid interest in torture, and were loathed even more so than the Kapos themselves.

The hysteria between the two compares to each other because everyone exaggerates over certain people and what they are doing with their lives.
