9. I think learning about it at the age of 15 shaped my future politics a lot.
Edited on Mon May-05-08 02:21 PM by Forkboy
I had heard about it at a younger age, but didn't really understand what it really was, and how it happened. I still have a real hard time grappling with the enormity of it, and how death became just another bureaucracy.

I was never a religious person, and that made me look at it in purely human terms of good and evil, and it gave me an insight into human nature that I almost wish I had never seen. The capacity for that kind of thing is in all of us as humans, and the ability to be lead down that path by the right confluence of events and personalities still exists today. It scares the shit out of me.
