I can't stand moral absolutism. You know, there's always that guy who wants to point out that Martin Luther King cheated on his wife– as if he obviously couldn't have been a great person if he did something like that. Or someone will bring out an inspirational quote, and get you to agree, and then inform you that H.itler said it. As if a good thought couldn't come from H.itler. Moral absolutism keeps us from learning from the past. It's easy to say: ‘H.itler was a demon. N.azis were all bad seeds.’ That's simple. It's much harder to say: ‘Is that humanity? Is that me?’
