“A couple of centuries ago, a smart fellow known as Voltaire pointed out, ‘Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.’ This is a timeless truth. It explains why a disturbing number of people in the year 2021 are calling for segregation, imposed poverty, or even concentration camps — they prefer to use euphemisms — for their neighbors who are, for whatever reason, unvaccinated against COVID-19. If this isn’t a willingness to commit an atrocity, what is? They’ve been fooled into believing absurdities concerning the virus, now they are publicly calling for atrocities.” (09/08/21)
