I want to venture into the topic raised by the Editrix. There is an effort by some to trivialize or rationalize and minimize the Holocaust. We do get the kook deniers, but they are a loud vocal minority.
We need to begin with the notion of man itself. Man is capable of great good as well as great evil. The great evil does not come from nowhere, but is part and parcel of political power plays. This should not be taken as an endorsement of the anarchy imbecile fantasies. Rather, we need a logical starting point of individual rights granted to us on the basis of our common humanity.
What makes the Holocaust unique was mixture of a vile idea of eugenics. Eugenics is a backward idea created by junk science that is laughable. Genetic diversity is mankind's greatest gift and love is too rare a gift to be spoiled by science. There have been plenty of massacres before, but an industrial genocide backed by a kooky scientific idea is unique.
The history of far left movements using Jew hatred for populist appeal continues to this day. What makes the left wing variant unique is the cold calculating nexus of evil elements the left binds together with the glue of Jew hatred.
We really do not spend nearly enough time on the crimes of Communists and Jihadis. Thus we encounter people who try and rebrand a deadly philosophies as relevant. The average American
does spend some time on the crimes of colonialism and slavery. They spend zero time on the crimes of communists and Islamo colonialism.
We really do need to discuss Islamo colonialism and the historic crimes of communists. It is utterly preposterous that histories greatest butchers should proclaim themselves the moral arbiters of right and wrong and pass judgement on anyone.
