About That Peaceful Majority

This video made a point that shocked me for it's insight.

The genius starts at 1:50. "The peaceful majority were irrelevant."

Wow. I hadn't thought of it that way.

The truth is that a Moslem is a good man to the extent that he is a "bad Moslem", and he is a "good Moslem" to the extent that he is a bad man.

How about this: What makes you a good person are the same characteristics that make you a prime candidate to be dominated by a sufficiently large group of bad people. That is, 75% of the German population were good folks who just wanted to live and let live. They were easy pickings for the 25% Nazis who had no problem using force and intimidation.

Ah, but now you've introduced a *third* sense of 'good' to add to the two different senses I used.
