Weber whines that “[it’s] been almost 30 years, and Holocaust revisionism has gotten almost no support in academic circles or society at large”, and he attributes this outcome to the malevolent influence of “Jewish-Zionist power” over academic and public opinion in North America and the West in general.
PLUS: one of my hobby horses — the dangers posed by historically inaccurate films:
Political correctness is so easy to exploit. Universities in the United States, supposedly the guardians of intellectual rigour and scientific proof, have been cowed into accepting courses that clearly reject normal standards of evidence. This is perhaps the logical extreme of the anti-hierarchical revolution begun in the 1960s and now taken to a ridiculous and dangerous degree.
It may sound alarmist when one talks of these attempts to fragment proven reality. Yet the effects of counterknowledge and pseudo-history might develop a bigger threat to liberal democracy than the authoritarian onslaughts of Stalin and Hitler. This new insidious power to produce intellectual and scientific chaos is easy to underestimate.
