Something that concerns me

I have plenty of families and friends who avoid politics and avoid the news which has always been the case, but lately I see many posters here joining them and even bragging about avoiding following current affairs and telling how very good this has been for reducing tension and stress.
I am reminded of the citizens of post-war Germany when all civilians swore they NEVER supported the Nazis and that they had no idea of the death camps existence. They heard nothing,saw nothing, knew nothing, and smelled nothing even though the smell of death and rot was overwhelming when the wind blew from a certain direction..."I noticed it but after a while I got used to it and it just became one more thing...".
But they knew nothing only because they consciously avoided hearing and seeing and smelling. Human decency demanded that though they could not stop it or perhaps even oppose it their remained a duty to at very least bear witness to the evil revealed before them. And they failed.
After three hard years the media has finally had enough and is beginning to bear witness. While the information that flows is sick and disgusting it is the truth-our leader and much of his party are treasonous criminals driven only to possess wealth and power. They are craven evil and many who support them are good Germans. I have made my decision, I have just two duties, to bear witness and to vote them out. Will you join me or look away?
