Moral relevance of history

    • Does history of US conquest & atrocities against civilians mean US people have no right to be upset/angry/vengeful about 9/11 attack on WTC?
    • When should victims “get over” a crime”
    • How to respond to horrors of history. E.g. difference between German response to Nazi’s & death camps vs. US or Japanese response to history of war crimes
    • Debts we cannot pay
    • “looking forward” vs. pretending the past has no relevance
  • Scientific language to persuade: euphemisms (“collateral damage”, citations of research, trying to persuade others you are credible)
  • Disease: yes Europeans died too. Also Africans. Epidemic diseases. Jared Diamond: Guns, Germs, Steel + subsequent critiques etc.
  • The problem of condescension in trying to understand others. You never get it all right. But still seems to be worth trying.
  • Identities. (in the paper scheme, a subset of values.) People’s sense of who they are, allegiances. I’m this kind of person.
