Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week

Scholar: Martin Wagner

“If the defendant excuses himself on the ground that he acted not as a man but as a mere functionary whose functions could just as easily have been carried out by anyone else, it is as if a criminal pointed to the statistics on crime — which set forth that so-and-so many crimes per day are committed in such-and-such a place — and declared that he only did what was statistically expected, that it was mere accident that he did it and not somebody else, since after all somebody had to do it.”

-- Hannah Arendt, (From the postscript to Eichmann in Jerusalem)
