I agree that they should do a good job, and most of these guys are anything but ignorant, they just read documents B and C instead of A and D.

If we don't have the whole truth, even if we're only off by a hair, we can't really have the "unabridged" word. Therefore, everything is more or less personal belief. I believe documents A and F and G are correct while Joe-Nazi believes documents D and L and Y are correct. Maybe I'm biased because I'm Jewish, maybe he's biased because he's a Nazi. At what point does personal belief make something "wrong"?

And that's my problem with "official doctrine". Germany only has these laws because the rest of the world makes it feel like poop for WWII. Which we really need to get over....I'm looking at YOU Poland.
