At which point does a person become a monster? We all view it as a straight, glaring line that one must cross to be considered a monster. But that isn't the truth. Every man sins. The more you look at each situation, the more the moral areas shade themselves in a murky grey.
Is someone like Dexter a monster? A man who kills because he cannot fight the dark passenger inside him. Or is he just a realistic vigilante? What about the man who kills for his family? Seeks revenge for a wrong committed against them? Do our valiant soldiers fight under a murky flag?
I pose this question to you my readers. Comments and emails are welcomed. From my great love for Dexter, I plan on writing a short story in the near future about a young boy who witnessed terrible events, and his decline into the seedy world of gangs and violence.
