What does it take to make an entire country wrap around an idea so full of hatred and how do we keep it from happening again?

Jonathan Maxwell is the author of Murderous Intellectuals: German Elites and the Nazi SS, in which he studies the perplexing question of a time in history that will forever haunt humanity…the Holocaust. In Murderous Intellectuals: German Elites and the Nazi SS, Jonathon answers some of the most perplexing questions about the Holocaust and what it takes to make an entire country fill with rage over another group of people based on religion. Just who were the Archetypes and who was ultimately responsible for the death of thousands of Jewish people? He even goes as far as to look at the genetics aspects of humanity. Ask yourself this, are we as human beings prone to violence? Can it really be as basic as genetics? If so, wouldn’t the ability to reason over power the thought process of hatred based on nothing more than the way another person looks, worships and or lives?

Though the subject matter contained in this novel occurred before I was born, I have to wonder about the similarities that are occurring even now in our modern day society. The acts of violence and genocide occur even today are nothing more than a repeat of yesterday. To take it a step further, the Bible talks about a Pharoses literally slaughtering newborns in order to kill one he was afraid of. Can it really be that with today’s technology and advances, we have not really grown as a species?

Join me live Saturday to learn about some of the similarities we face in our society and why it is so important we listen and grow as a species rather than fall back into familiar patterns. We can not repeat this history. We have already done that too many times.
