Watched one of the so many Hitler biographies. Didn’t appreciate that, by the time he came to power, in 1933, he had been anti-semitic for roughly twenty years. Since after, or during, World War I. Repetition.
Thinking about reading an article as to how Syria was/is institutionally anti-semitic. Acceptable in popular newspapers to speak of “the Zionists and the Americans”, over and over. Repetition.
Thinking about how evangelical Christians and orthodox Muslims refer to “God”, over and over. Repetition.
Wondering if repetition represents an essential weakness in perspective.
