Untouchable

The great doctrines of identity of the ethical universal, in terms of which liberalism thought out its ethical programs, played history false, because the identity was disengaged in terms of who was and who was not human. That’s why all of these projects, the justification of slavery, as well as the justification of Christianization, seemed to be alright; because, after all, these people had not graduated into humanhood, as it were.
