The world is seemingly populated with souls who would deny the Holocaust.

Blink, and you will have missed it.

Events which echo those horrors bring them tumbling out of the woodwork like so many blind worms, quick to point the finger of conspiracy even as they conspire. The planet is full of souls in denial; quick to maim in order to secure a place in the next world, or line their pockets in this. The coffers of their church. The world is full of sycophants who would sooner look the other way.

The world is full of twisted motherf@ckers.

The wheel that turns is like that which steers the boat. The river thickens and congeals. Turns crude; the polluted arteries of a stricken heart.
