There is precedent

Reader comment on item: Reflections on the Revolution in France*

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Nov 8, 2005 at 11:28

During the period of time when France surrendered to the Nazis in 1940 to when the last German soldier was expelled in 1945, collaboration was a route chosen by a lot of people.

So, what does this have to do with the violence which is spreading? There are people who still defend making a faustian bargain with an oppressor. And where does this lead? Those who want to get to the bottom of the situation are shunned, just like Germans who want to learn about how widespread support for the Nazis was.
