Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon

Magda Hassan Wrote:This is fascinating stuff Jan. I had no idea. The Germans also had New Guinea for a while and they were not missed by the local population when that colony was confiscated after WW1 and handed to Australia to 'administer'. I am not aware of any such happenings there but there are certainly no happy memories and much cruelty. The whole trial run type thing is pretty spooky. And I don't think they have gone away just gone quiet and work in different ways. The whole 'elite' type thinking and being afraid of the masses.

The truth is that the root of genocide is the concept of a master race, of "pure" blood, of "good" blood and "bad" blood.

Racial hygiene. The phrase says it all.

Exterminate, eliminate black, gypsy, slav, Jew blood.

The root is eugenics.

And eugenics, perfection of the blood, is a deep secret sine qua non of the ruling elites.

They believe Their blood is superior.

They know that They cannot say this openly.
"It means this War was never political at all, the politics was all theatre, all just to keep the people distracted...."

"They are in Love. Fuck the War."
