The wisdom of Albert Speer

White guilt

In California, genocide is never too far from homeAlbert Speer, architect of the Third Reich, perhaps said it best. “Let me remind you only of the witch-hunts of the middle ages, the horrors of the French revolution, or the genocide of the American Indians,” he wrote from prison in 1953. “In such periods there are always only a very few who do not succumb. But when it is all over, everyone, horrified, asks ‘for heaven’s sake, how could I?’”

Our ability to put atrocities out of mind knows no bounds.
