The Perpetrator and the Victim

I read the following statement this week – It’s a very controversial and sensitive subject.  What are your views on this ?. . . .

“It is very tempting to take the side of the perpetrator. All the perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing. He appeals to the universal desire to see, to hear, and to speak no evil. The victim, on the contrary, asks the bystander to share the burden of pain. The victim demands action, engagement, and remembering.”—Judy Herman
