    I’m a contrarian. Does the “Greatest Generation” include the American Nazis who opposed US involvement in the war? Does it include the black marketeers who profited from selling stolen gasoline? Or the people who bought the gasoline?

    What about the people who stole the property of Japanese Americans confined to camps? Or the physically fit young men who weaseled out of the draft? Or the white racists who attacked black troops during the war and lynched those who came home and dared to wear their uniforms?

    This discussions leaves out why the Puritans were in Holland in the first place: because, after ruling England for more than a decade under Cromwell (and doing things like banning Christmas as a pagan feast), they were driven out by the populace when the monarchy was restored. They were the Taliban of their time. Once in power in their North American colony, they tortured and murdered Quakers for heresy.
