Taking on The Apologists

Norman Geras has a well written, and well thought out essay. I almost hesitate to provide an excerpt:
Nothing is wrong with genuine efforts at understanding; on these we all depend. But the genuine article is one thing, and root-causes advocacy that seeks to dissipate responsibility for atrocity, mass murder, crime against humanity, especially in the immediate aftermath of their occurrence, is something else.
Read it all.
