“Show Me the Man and I’ll Show You the Crime” vs. The Rule of Law

“Lavrentiy Beria was an unrelenting and merciless secret police chief under Stalin’s rule. Stalin’s reign of terror claimed the lives of millions of innocents. Beria ‘bragged that he could prove criminal conduct on anyone, even the innocent. ‘Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime’ was Beria’s infamous boast.’’ … In 1984, George Orwell wrote, ‘The programmes of the Two Minutes Hate varied from day to day, but there was none in which Goldstein was not the principal figure.’ That Trump has so many haters doesn’t establish his innocence, nor, for that matter, his guilt.” (06/04/24)
