"Trying to understand is not the same as forgivness."

In this, Arendt is correct, and why she herself is absolved of all guilt.

Arendt proposed that evil is generated from a dialectic of totalitarianism. Phenomenology. When will we stop paying for Husserl, that naive innocent Catholic.

If one lacks the disease of phenomenology, one can clearly see that the ends of Nazism were declared explicitly from the beginning. Ther was no "phenomenological dialectic" behind the genocide, it was an explicitly stated goal from the beginning. The "dialectic of totalitarisnism" is nothing more but the removal of traditional institutions and their replacement with socialist ones that will permit the attainment of the already declared goal.

It didn't just occur to them one day. It didn't arise dialectically from a phenomenological progression of a spirit of totalitarianism. It was written in several books at the outset of the project. It was a banal topic of conversation. The rest was just acquiring the means.

The distinction between totalitarianism and socialism is a pointless one.
