Hannah Arendt’s Thesis

[Hannah Arendt’s] thesis that Nazism and Communism were of the same stock has been well remembered. However, many forget that she also held the “terrible massacres” and “wild murdering” of European imperialists responsible for the “triumphant introduction of such means of pacification into ordinary, respectable foreign policies,” thereby fathering totalitarianism and its genocides.
