Auschwitz Under Our Noses (

We shake our heads self-righteously, certain that if we'd been there, liberation would have come earlier -- all the while failing to see that the present is no different. Quite a lot has changed in 60 years, but the ways in which information about crimes against humanity can simultaneously be 'known' and not known hasn't changed at all. Nor have other interests and other priorities ceased to distract people from the feelings of shame and guilt they would certainly feel, if only they focused on them.

I agree. Unfortunately, when we act to stop murderous villains, people my age block intersections in San Francisco, and shout about how evil they think OUR President is.
