“So call it my trying to help you keep your focus, and not fall into the same trap, of forgetting even for a moment, just what a banal and mundane and everyday thing evil is.”
Well that is a wonderful post Ron and it is really making me think. I suppose the banality of evil does not begin in concentration camps or in innocent people being loaded onto trucks by screaming soldiers and snarling dogs in occupied towns; it begins with meetings and rationalisations and strokes of pens. It filters down the line through respectable people in comfortable offices just doing their jobs. It is an exercise in box-ticking
Much as I agree with all of what you say on first read: I can think of nothing to add. But I will probably think about it more, because it certainly deserves that, and maybe I can add something later.
