Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Ralph Raico

All mass murderers — all of the state terrorists on a grand scale, whatever their ethnicity or that of their victims — must be arraigned before the court of history. It is impermissible to let some of them off the hook, even if the acts of others may be characterized as unique in their brazen embrace of evil and their sickening horror. As Lord Acton said, the historian should be a hanging judge, for the muse of history is not Clio, but Rhadamanthus, the avenger of innocent blood.

Ralph Raico, “The Taboo Against Truth: Holocausts and Historians,” Liberty, September 1989.
