Saw this article in the Washington Post this week (using another link here). The FBI director wants agents to go to the Holocaust museum to learn not to surrender individual morality to groups (or authority). Isn’t this the agency that invented Cointelpro?! Its very nature is dependent on moral surrender, as is all human rights violations and atrocities the world has witnessed.
In their minds, the murderers and accomplices of Germany, and Poland, and Hungary, and so many, many other places didn’t do something evil. They convinced themselves it was the right thing to do, the thing they had to do. That’s what people do. And that should truly frighten us.
