If circumstances are not favorable . . .


"All people, Jews or gentiles, who dare not defend themselves when they know they are in the right, who submit to punishment not because of what they have done but because of who they are, are already dead by their own decision; and whether or not they survive physically depends on chance. If circumstances are not favorable, they end up in gas chambers."

--From Bruno Bettelheim, FREUD'S VIENNA AND OTHER ESSAYS
