In Their Own Words

"Pointing to the banality of evil does not make humans, nazis or others, less culpable morally. Humans are responsible for the evil they do, regardless of why they do it. They are accountable before humanity and God. ... Pointing to the banality of goodness does not diminish it in any way. An act is good when it is caring, when it protects the life and rights of others, no matter who does it, or where, or why."

–David R. Blumenthal
