A year or so ago, I read about a study which showed that Germans' opinions of themselves were more like the opinions of them held by foreigners living in their country than foreigners' opinions (of the natives) living in any other country in the world.   And I thought this was exceptionally admirable.   Not only because the Germans are guilty of committing the most heinous attempt in recorded history to eradicate a great and geographically dispersed people, during World War II, but also because so many other modern countries have polities in total denial of the horriblenesses in their pasts and, in many cases, their presents as well.

I have a law degree (Stanford, 66') but have never practiced. Instead, from 1967 through 1977, I tried to contribute to the revolution in America. As unsuccessful as everyone else over that decade, in 1978 I went to work for the U.S. Forest (more...)
