I saw cities, and roads of marvelous construction. I saw cruelty and greed, but I've seen them here too. I saw a people live a life that was strange in many ways, but also much the same as anywhere else.Then why are they so cruel? There was an earnestness to the girl's face, an honest desire to know. Cruelty is in all of us, he said. But they made it a virtue.
