Why include the quote from Schindler's List? Are we supposed to take it as evidence for what causes wars?

OK, then, do you consider Schindler's List or any other Hollywood film evidence that the war was profitable for industrialists in Germany?

That's a funny thing to say on the quotes thread. Tom McCabe is deploying rhetoric, but this whole thread is about sharing rhetoric (or maybe directly using it).
