¿La última frase?

Me parece bastante torpe el uso de lo porque sabemos el sujeto. No deja de mostrar que esta institución como la que era, extraordinariamente cruel. (la institución es el sujeto). 😀

Hola Jane

The sentence is:

Claro que esto no deja de mostrar esta institución como lo que era, extraordinariamente cruel.

Translated as:

But of course this does not stop this terrible institution being seen for what it was, an enormous cruelty.

If you try a literal translation, although less natural, you'll see more clearly what that "lo" means:

But of course this does not stop showing this institution as what it was, an enormous cruelty.

That "what" is "lo que" - See lesson on "lo que". 

I hope it clarified it.

Saludos
