BaruchWell if one sees Soren as the first theistic existentialistWed May 23, 2012 18:27184.108.40.206... as the first Christian theologian to deal with the nihilism of modernity, one is left with a leap of faith. I disagree with him, because he was still haunted by his modernity, and I have purged myself of it. Having seen my face before my parents were born ... the meaning of faith in its usual modern definition (as something irrational), is not how I would phrase it. Faith is unnecessary, if one is able to see things as they are, if one has banned the "natural" duality invented by the Greek Geeks ... I no more need faith to believe in G-d, than I need faith to believe in you.
Yes, there are generational victims on the Nazi side, not just the Jewish side. Not to mention all the other people killed. But that is the difference between shame and guilt. Guilt really should be applied to these children of Nazis ... they weren't personally responsible for their parent's actions. But in a shame culture (which is part of the reason all Jews were targeted, because in shame because of some bad Jewish apples, all were to be punished), one is never quite free of ones parents and other prior generations. I suspect the truth is both ... though humans usually choose poles apart. Quite a few Jews who are children of concentration camp survivors have been traumatized by their parents ongoing nightmares (see Maus). Again, unjustified in a guilt culture.
The idea of some Nazi children sterilizing themselves to prevent offspring ties in ironically with the whole Germanic race theory. And there are people on the other side, usually Gentiles, who believe in a Davidic blood line and a Nephelim blood line, who would agree that the children of Nephelim should never have children. And they are haunted by the idea that even if they are Davidic, that with even a drop of Nephelim blood, they will not be saved, because for them salvation is strictly sanquine.
