Welcome to an Autodidact's egregiously oversimplified pleonasmic emporium of hodge-podgery
Much like this.
In truth, I've never bought into Arendt's philosophy. She's really quite controversial.
XL exactly :)LEAHAgreed she was focussing from a specific angle but the observation dovetails nicely with how Eichman desperately tried to ignore his past and pretend to an average citizen. His designs were unspeakably evil and they also required the compliance and endorsement of everyday people.Here we are 60 years later and we've watched in horror as the same mentality allowed neighbours to lose it in Serbia, Rwanda and Sudan. It terrifies me that that switch can be turned on so easily.
Truly, group think is a dangerous thing, when the individual voice and thought are silenced.I can totally understand what they mean by the mindless masses doing some pretty evil, crappy things. That's what happens when we listen to a$$holes. All we end up with is sh*t!
who ever first said this‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.’ probably had Hannah's quote in mind
oh - and good to see that you're hanging in with the bloggeryxxxx

His housekeeper said he was a very nice, charming man.
