28. Well, Sir
Edited on Sat Jul-30-05 02:43 PM by The Magistrate
When you can show me vigilante mobs rounding up Moslems on the streets of London, for example, then it might be possible to say you were on to something. Since you have made every attempt the language allows to suggest there is a purposeful attempt to produce such a situation by the authorities, you will have to forgive me for taking you at opur words, and responding accordingly.

Whether or not an idea is popular or not, Sir, here or elsewhere, makes no difference whatever to my view of whether it is either true to fact, a sensible interpertation of fact, or worthy of serious regard or not. It is my custom to make such judgements by my own lights, and with a complete disregard for what others might think or feel in the matter. It does, of course, please me when others are moved to agree, but my life affords me a variety of sources of pleasure, so that that particular one can be done without easily when not available.

It is true there is a good deal of misperception long evident here concerning the rise of Nazism, and the establishment and course of the Third Reich. Serious study of the matter is the cure for that, but it is arduous, and so rarely undertaken, and pointless to recommend....
