“Forgetting extermination is part of extermination.” ― Jean Baudrillard,
Does anyone deserve this?
Europe, long before the advent of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, anti-Jewish prejudice was a complex phenomenon that stretched across the continent and existed among all the peoples of Europe. The Jews were a people apart, not only by virtue of the fact that they maintained separate religious beliefs but because of distinct cultural practices as well. Klaus Fischer, a German historian of the roots of Nazism, has stressed that the Jews were "an ancient cultured people" who practiced a reverence for learning and philosophical thinking centuries before the existence of the early Greek city-states or the Roman republic.
When Jews entered into Europe in large numbers during the Middle Ages, "they found themselves living among primitive Western people who were repelled by their superior intelligence and their clever business acumen. There was mutual contempt and hate . . . the two peoples were living geographically alongside each other, but they were immersed in different cultural stages." If Fischer is correct, then the Europeans' responses toward the Jews involved religious differences, cultural differences, the suspicion of one group of people toward 'outsiders,' and not a little envy. It was a volatile mixture that readily could be fanned into violence.
DON'T LET HISTORY REPEAT ITSELF
Pride goes before the fall
The most dangerous idiot holds a gun
Idol worship brings an incurable illness
The absolute worst illness is mental
The abnormal terrorizes the normal
It feels good that poison
Murders and lies pair up and marry each other
Once this disease conquers you; you cease being human
