Serial killers are an amorphous lot, difficult to categorize. There are rich ones and poor ones, smart ones and stupid ones, homosexuals and straights, males and some females, black ones and white ones. However, all serial killers share one latent trait…..the absence of a conscience.
Technically, Hitler and Stalin were not serial killers they were mass murderers. This is primarily a distinction having to do with style and volume. However, both men shared with their cousin serial killers the bottomless pit of not having a conscience.
Arabic, the mother tongue of Islam, the language of the Koran and Muhammad has no word for “conscience”.
