The list of all sins possible will never end. So what is this new one? Refusing to recognize the ones we have already made – especially as a nation.
I am reading Who Rules the World? where Chomsky describes the sins America has committed. It’s an unbelievable list – all carefully footnoted.
Without coming right out and saying so – he seems to be saying the American public was forced to do these awful things – and the blame for them lies elsewhere.
I was part of the American public when these things were happening in the middle of the last century – and I can testify that my fellow Americans supported these atrocities enthusiastically – or carefully looked the other way, as they were happening. And are still supporting them in various places in the world.
