I once read that one of Monster’s many themes is to explore whether it is possible for there to be an irredeemably evil human being. I think Urasawa gives his answer in this one quote. It is impossible to erase all traces of humanity within a person, no matter how much trauma that person has endured. Even Johan, unarguably the most corrupt and cruel character of the entire cast, retains some scraps of humanity, as can be seen through his lingering attachment to his sister.
