Auschwitz Death Camp Train Tracks and Station
This comment by Warren Blumenfeld on the post Contributors to Genocide & Holding Corporations Accountable
Dear wellokaythen. Though you may or may not have intended to do so, you have confirmed the Civil Rights worker, Eldridge Cleaver’s, contention that: “If you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem!” There is no such thing as an “innocent bystander” when that bystander knows of wrongdoing, but does nothing to intervene. Holocausts and genocides on the macro level, as well as harassment and bullying on the micro level share similarities, for each includes 1. a strong leader or leaders, 2. dehumanization of targeted individual(s) or group(s), and 3. non-intervention by individuals and entire countries to stand up to the harassment and oppression. Unfortunately in this instance, not enough people stood up to Henry Ford until it was far too late. You, however, have a great opportunity to stand up and sign Leo Bretholz’s petition. Will you be a bystander or an upstander?
Question of the Day:
Should corporations who profit from services to perpetrators of crimes against humanity and genocide (like transporting victims to their death in Nazi death camps for payment) be held accountable?
