Holy crap guys what does this have to do with anti-semitism at all. All I am saying is that for some reason the Holocaust gets more attention than any
other atrocity in human history even though it is certainly not the worst as some claim. I mean it was huge. Some of the people seem to understand
what I am saying, while others just call it anti-semitic. Did you even read my original post or did you just read the title and jump to
dude, you got it with your last sentence. Dont worry about it.
And for those who label you...just ignore them. Whatever you do, dont try to enlighten them, they will not listen - they feed of this stuff
(conflict). They are not here to deny ignorance, as it were, but here to continue to push their dogmatic viewpoint.
This happens quite often with topcis like this, or any other. People come with a closed mind, so how can anything else enter. Seriously...dont worry
about it. Breathe, and just dont reply to such a post because they wont get it.
I got your point and it was well stated. Those who agree, already know...those who dont agree will label you a heretic until that seed roots and grows
in them...if ever.
Suppose this keeps us in check and humble.
peace, and thanks for sharing
note: also, what you said about collective evil is good.
I wrote about that somewhere in post here about the holocaust. We like to collectively hate things so we can hide behind that hate and create newer
and even crueler atrocities.
In short, as I said in one of the post in this thread...we dont like to pony up that we have our own responsibility for our own actions. If I pull a
trigger and kill anyone, its my choice no matter how brainwashed I am. Sounds unfair? Its not really if you look at the collective whole and how
things inner relate in the universe.
For the most part, we are all brainswashed by our milieu. We believe whatever it is in our surroundings. Was I born in the middle east? Then Im a
muslim (unless I had the Jewish upbringing) If im born in America, Im Christian...it works that easy.
We have to go beyond baby stage, wake up and see we have choices. Not say, "hitler made me do it" - "George Bush made me do it". No one but you
made you do anything.
Nothing but the identification with the collective ego that likes to play games.
