RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY DANIEL FINKELSTEIN IN THE TIMES

“Mad. But so too was Hitler”

Authoritative psychiatric studies of Hitler tell us clearly that he was not mad.

His not being mad is precisely what makes him so frightening.

Madness is tragic, not frightening.

Humans are simply capable of anything, given the right set of beliefs or obsessions.

It’s the damned human race, a gang of nasty chimpanzees with the brains to be even more destructive than their ancestors.
