his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them."

Reader comments about this quote:
I'm reminded of the Germans living within a kilometer of a concentration camp that said they had "no idea" that it was even there when questioned by liberating allied forces. I guess the trains coming and going and the stench were something no one noticed....or were too afraid to admit.

    When he spoke of nationalists he was speaking of Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini.  Leftists all and all dictators.  Socialism kills.
