    I find no record of the cat burning.
    There is not one single recording of such an event.

    Stalin was a participator in the Holocaust. It is not a news.
    He did betray the Poles and the Jews alike.

    After WWII, Germany is the only nation to come to grips with history.

    After the war many leftists in the USA were accused of treason.
    More than half too many.

    As is often the case, the eventual traitors could not be arrested. They were the national heroes.

    It does not matter. You can always find the culprit.

    Especially if the man in the White House is a gentleman.
    A war hero, but a gentleman none the less.

    None of them. The reason is a constriction, by the rule of law, of violent minorities of populations.

    Our despair always has its root in the standards we set for ourselves, whether politics, personal or philosophical, since a problem is only a problem relative to some standard of comparison, but that standard is not something objective, it is something we set for ourselves and can choose to change.

    Acceptance of a perfect standard does not imply acceptance of authority. Why not try to come up with what we, based on our own thinking would conceive to be the perfect standard?
