“Property, material goods, should stop being valued as more than a human being. I will not talk about property damage as violence. Violence, for me, is always interpersonal. To equate smashing a window with punching a face is to value things over people. It is to value melted sand over a human life. And I think that’s part of our problem as cohabitants on this planet. We value what’s ours more than we value the lives of others. Often that means that we view our loves, our partners and families, as property. As things to be owned. As things that are MINE and not yours. That feeling of ownership over living, breathing human beings diminishes their value as people and makes them as valuable as window panes.”
