Professor David Ray Griffin in a televised interview for the BBC:
One of my favorite exchanges from the interview:
Griffin: Your question still stands: That we have to believe that some of these people in the administration would do a very terrible thing. And, that is absolutely right.
Host: And it’s hard to believe that. I mean, it is such a monstrous thing to do.
Griffin: But when you look at what people have done for the sake of empire and riches, in the past, it is not so hard to believe.
Temper the above with the following quote from Aldous Huxley:
“That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that History has to teach”
Truer words… Truer words.
