"The new generation has to hear what the older generation refuses to tell it."
“Man’s capacity for justice makes democracy possible; but man’s inclination to injustice makes democracy necessary.”
Most nations have things in their past which they wish to forget.
And they obscure them in a mythos, with a false memory of their own self-righteousness.
But to forget them is to invite their return, in words that are echoes of the past, and the objectification of 'the other' as they define them.
