    How to use "Dehumanize" in context?

    Dehumanization occurs when an individual or group is perceived as having no intrinsic value and no inherent worth. This can be done through verbal attacks, exclusion, or inaction.

    When someone is dehumanized, their basic human rights are violated. This can lead to feelings of isolation and depression, which can in turn cause more dangerous behaviors.

    Dehumanization is often used as a tool of power and control. It can decrease resistance to a group or individual, and make them more susceptible to manipulation.

    The best way to counteract dehumanization is to have a respectful and open conversation about it.
