Quotable: Stanley Milgram on bad Germans

“There is always some element of bad form in objecting to the destructive course of events, or indeed, in making it a topic of conversation. Thus, in Nazi Germany, even among those most closely identified with the ‘final solution’, it was considered an act of discourtesy to talk about the killings.”

–Stanley Milgram, Obedience to Authority
