As real as you

It wasn't only wickedness and scheming that made people unhappy, it was confusion and misunderstanding; above all, it was the failure to grasp the simple truth that other people are as real as you.

A wonderful passage from Atonement by Ian McEwan. Relevant to these past few days, weeks, months and years of cultural turmoil. The guy in the other trench is as real as you.
