weird to write with a pencil, cause that's something you can erase...

It's not the point - the thing is the pencil gets shorter when you write with it, making the badguys disappear. If I'm not mistaken.

If you keep sharpening the pencil, the bad guys will disappear, but in time, the victim will be gone too.

The perfect illustration of the proverb "the road to hell is paved with good intentions".

The act of writing with a pencil implies that it will have to be sharpened. If a scene that portrays injustice is printed onto a pencil, it will inevitably be eroded as the pencil is gradually sharpened. The more you write about injustice, the more it disappears :)
