A note on “monsters”
I’m seeing this word far too often in bureau communications and it has to stop. Taxpaying citizens of USA are not monsters. People with culture and language, regardless of their residence or lifestyle, are not monsters. Your coworkers with fins or horns or bio-luminescence are NOT MONSTERS!
The word monster is reserved explicitly for use in describing unintelligent living things that are innately driven to the destruction of life for its own sake. No, carnivorous animals are not monsters. They hunt in order to eat. A monster hunts in order to kill.
And while sport hunting remains a major concern for the Bureau, sentient sport hunters — or murderers — are not monsters. They are criminals, and it is not our place to supersede criminal law by sloppily labeling them as monsters and wasting bureau resources on a “monster hunt”.
Continued use of this term to slur innocent people will result in disciplinary action. Those of you so eager to see more monsters in your work might enjoy a few months on lab duty.
