re: #328 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

Had one grown up in it, one might easily have come to see it as a worthy cause. I cannot judge people from history for doing what they did, even if I disagree with it from my modern point of view.

I do not want to think about what it would have been like to have been born in the 20’s in Germany and grow up as a youth/teenager under the Nazi regime.

Well history is about challenging your inate biases. It’s easy to romanticize our ancestors. I certainly have done it and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it but the romantic image isn’t the same as the reality. As for Germany, I like to think I would have done the right thing and opposed the Nazis. I feel fairly certain I would have. I think this is why it helps to talk to people from different backgrounds.
