    The Nazi genocide against the Jews is much concentrated-upon, as indeed it should be.

    There’s a time and a place for puns, Jack.

      Oh my god. That one honestly slipped right past me. Sorry.

        Poorly timed as it may be, jokes that arise naturally tend to be perfect, for much the same reason crystals are.

        It’s also an extremely troubling point, one I’ve been considering as of late. I’ve been designing an RPG setting based on the American west, and a setting of imperialism and genocide makes for a strange flavor for six-gun excitement and adventure. Oddly, it’s also a point recently brought up in season 2 of The Man in the High Castle, where it’s part of the Nazi American citizenship test, a brief section on “pre-Nazi exterminations”.

            You hit the rivet on the head.
