9. Just like the concentration camp guards...
The human psyche can take only so much super-altered reality and habitual brutality before it starts to consume itself. The Death's Head regiments that ran the gas chambers routinely had to be transferred out when the nightmares and neurotic behavior started. For Hitler, the isolation and insulation from the effects of his acts allowed him greater time before the inevitable neuroses occurred. For the guards, the sight of so many young and old faces filled with despair and hopelessness was an unavoidable daily bath.
For George and Dick and Karl -- it will come.
