Representative man …

… Book Review: Hitler - (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Hitler was an early champion of many ideas typical of our own degraded modern age—vegetarianism, the opposition to hunting, the endorsement of abortion and euthanasia, and the rejection of the past, including old-time religion. Are the Nuremberg rallies really so different, Mr. Wilson asks, from "our love of spectacularly large football stadia, pop festivals, and open-air religious celebrations"? The Olympic torch, he reminds us, is a Nazi invention.
