We destroy the beauty of the countryside because the un-appropriated splendors of nature have no economic value. We are capable of shutting off the sun and the stars because they do not pay a dividend. — John Maynard Keynes
Don Monkerud's serious side
You probably know his as satirist, but here is Don with some very sober reflections on the 20th century's largest-scale crime: On Eichman. My own thought (a small one for such a big issue) is that the only thing unique and "Never again!" about the Nazi slaughter of Jews, Gypsies and others was the scale and efficiency. That type of crime has been recurrent ever since Samson tried to wipe out the Philistines, and continues in too many parts of the world.
