Jan, Malik, Catweasle,

Sure, guilt is something personal. Meanwhile any possible sort of disaster 
is spelled out in any possible sort of "information". Amazing to see, how 
Catweasle - thanks for your reaction - completely refuses to see the 
enormity of destruction, that science made possible, and real, in the last
century. 
What was the consequence of this finest positivist period of the fin de
siecle,
wherein German, French, English, American scientists worked like monks for
the 
ever rising humanity: the industrial killing of WW1. (compared to which a
crusade
is just a holiday)
Something, another lazy philosopher, Nietzsche, had seen coming, and warned
for with
a loud voice. He advised Bismarck, to lay arms down ... 
N.: "The interim-character of national wars" "Europe only wants one thing:
to become one."
"What if Napoleon ..."  Etc., etc.
(For the morbid relation of this to the holocaust see: Omer Bartov: Industrial
killing: World War 1, the holocaust, and representation. The idea: The only
way
to prevent the horrible massive killing, is horrible massive killing of those,
who want to horrible massive kill you. 
The term "representation" may come as a surprise, behind it is Heidegger's
Erlebnis.)

Though I am quite sceptical about America and history. Bartov speaks of the
"US, where 
history is popularly evoked as an adjective for whatever has become
irrelevant." 
We're not far behind.
