The Genesis of Genocide is a revolutionary, heart-centered prospective on why the holocaust happened and an understanding of why good people do bad things.
The Genesis of Genocide is the first Holocaust book to rise above all us-against-them polarities to embrace a holistic perspective, an unabashedly heart-centered stance! It not only refrains from demonizing Nazis but lays the burden of responsibility for their crimes squarely on a Judeo-Christian legacy, and the misparenting tradition that it deifies.
The Genesis of Genocide discusses the childhoods of Anne Frank and Adolf Hitler; exposes the Nuremberg Trials as the most egregious double bind in the history of civilization; unveils the practice of conditional love as the taproot of the racist mindset, and draws a series of haunting parallels between Adolf Hitler, macho demigod, and Marilyn Monroe, supreme sex goddess; tracks the shifting dynamic that empowers some victims of child abuse to be productive members, even pillars of society, while others are driven to be troublemakers or public menaces; identifies Abraham, the founder of Judaism, as the patron saint of the captured Nazis who are put on trial at Nuremberg; shows how the Holocaust resolves into a dance between perpetrator and victim; shows how Auschwitz is the logical culmination of a religious tradition that harks back to the Binding of Isaac and the Crucifixion of Christ.
