I mostly enjoy Jeff Harrell’s writing for his weekly bloggy roundup of Survivor.

On Friday he made the case that Senator Durbin may have been right:

To Americans today, the Holocaust is remembered, when it’s remembered at all, as a time when uniformed guards were cruel to prisoners in camps. The details are forgotten. Which makes the comparisons between Auschwitz and Camp Delta not merely inevitable, but actually reasonable.

The whole thing is well worth your time and consideration.

Hat tip to Jay Tea who makes his own points on relativism.

Update: Iowahawk has other writings of Senator Durbin’s that highlight the points made.
