    Where did I judge these people by their nation state? I’m judging them based on their actions.

    This behavior is very reminiscent of the behavior of Israeli “settlers” in the West Bank, and I was pointing out that comparison.

    I judge the nation of Israel, which is democratic with mandatory conscription (i.e. brainwashing every Israeli adult into believing Palestinians are literally subhuman) for creating these people. But in a democratic system, the people aren’t entirely blameless.

    And no it’s not the same as Hitler, he was (barely) elected and then seized power and did away with the democracy, so it’s not like the German people could have just voted him out (not that they would have).

    We (humans) have already settled this anyway. Read The Banality of Evil to understand why the German people are absolutely not blameless, and it’s perfectly acceptable to criticize them as individuals.

        It’s like you didn’t even read the first two sentences.
