The Final Solution: No Jews, Not One


One of the greatest crimes against humanity was perpetrated in meeting of just over an hour in a Berlin suburb in a villa at 56–58 Am Großen Wannsee -- an exemplification of what Hannah Arendt called "the banality of evil" -- horrific, diabolical evil -- and how it can occur under conditions of business as usual among common bureaucrats.


A very good film, entitled Conspiracy (2001), directed by Frank Pierson, and starring Kenneth Branagh as Reinhard Heydrich and Stanley Tucci as Adolf Eichmann, is obligatory viewing. Michael Voris draws parallels to spiritual battles looming in our own day, about which we do well to bear in mind that spiritual battles often spill over into the material world through portals of political power.

Anonymous,

Help fill this out for our readers a bit. I think most of us are familiar with the American "Final Solution" that involves killing upwards of 4000 Americans daily via abortion; but probably less familiar with how "this applies to US decisions re Salvador, Iraq, Laos ..." Thanks.

It will take 100,000 deaths to stabilize El Salvador, declared Gen Casanova at the time of full US support. Laos is proportionately the most bombed country in the whole of history, as a result of a cold US strategic decision to cut off Vietnamese making a path through Laos territory. Iraq 1991 was projected on US tv as a clean, efficient technological success, with no access to the terrible human cost in pulverized Iraqi villages etc. Most Americans thought the tv was telling them the truth about the war, unaware how carefully the media were scripted and controlled. Iraq 2003 was the dream child of people like Wolfowitz, who in the 1990s was saying to his students that we gotta turn Iraq into a US parking lot. All of this is just day-to-day business, the banality of evil, as is the abortion industry.

Thanks, Anonymous. Trotskyite Neocons and Autro-Libertarian Republicans are the bane of the ill-named party of contemporary "conservativism." Very good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7o6VKD1Eg-8
