41. You understanddthe concept of relativisim - you do.
You know - greater right?? Not 100% - just greater.

I know what happened in 42-43-44. I know Manzanar. Can never be justified - can be understood by the times they occured in, though. I can't understand the concept of slavery. But I understand what a dark age means. And it can last 100s of year.

Hitler, he is in hell accompanied by Mr Stalin right now. God - how does one say which was more evil than the other in such a case??

All you need to know - well, you will never learn all you need to know to make a judgement - you will learn what you can - and that is all.

I do not know how to be more concise. You say that is all you need to know - what does that mean - you don't need to learn more??

Joe
