I don't understand the obsession so many of my generation have for WWII. It was a war, it was history, but it WAS before our time--get over it! K is one of the obsessed. Whenever he is channel-surfing--ALL the time, by the way--if he comes to anything to do with WWII, he has to stop and watch it. It doesn't matter if it is a movie, mini-series, documentary, or propaganda film, he HAS to watch it because it deals with WWII. It completely baffles me.
Today I was dusting in the living room and caught a bit of the program--a WWII documentary--that K had on. It was all about the Nazis wanting to build a master race and the steps they went through to achieve their objective. Of course, the WAY the Nazis went about this was very, very horrifying, but it got me thinking: What if, at some point in time, humans decided to help evolution along and try to breed the best and the brightest that could be. If race and ethnicity had been taken out of the equation, would people have objected so much to trying to build a better race of humans? Is it possible that this could have been achieved, or would those that weren't 'good' enough rebel? Quite an intriguing thing to think about, right?
