While I acknowledge that the chance of such a cartel existing is likely 100%, the chance of finding smoking-gun evidence for it is close to zero. Whoever it is, we will still need to sort our own shit out whether we know or not. They have no interest in helping.

There are plenty of "smoking guns" and those who already "sort their own shit out" are the sorts who will hold them accountable. The Nuremberg trials were "Common Law" trials - no Authorities or parliamentary procedures required.

@Heresiarch Dude, I don't think the Nuremberg trials were a 100% good idea. For high-ranking Nazis and SS maybe, but it would have been a hard thing as a German with a family to not have "towed the line." When the consequences of not could be your family's death, many men would have been forced into worse and worse acts just to prove continued loyalty to National Socialism. Each step justified as necessary to keep your family safe. You somehow survive this with family intact to 1945 and just when you are to be reunited with them... arrested and taken to Nuremberg to be put on trial and hung for war crimes. I understand the necessity of the trials, to show that some token of justice for crimes be seen to be done but in some cases I reckon the justice must have seemed more like a crime for the men involved. Sure we want to remove the evil men, and many at Nuremberg were that, but without a means to be sure of the motives of actions we have to admit some injustices must also have been done.

@Hamulus If "towing the line" means following orders, then yes, Common Law (Nuremberg) trials are just as fair to minions "following orders" as they are for "high level" authorities. Ultimately each individual is personally responsible for each and every one of his actions. If you aren't willing to accept such responsibility, your only option is to get you and yours out of harm's way any way you can, and live in accord with your own personal values every step of the way. Uncounted thousand did.

@Heresiarch There is no argument which stands against this as law. Even morally, we must take responsibility for our actions, sure. But war happens in a constant state of grey and few return from it without having committed acts they wish they hadn't. These were men we tried and executed for the future good - just to say we had held evil accountable. Should the bomber crews of Dresden or the Enola Gay have joined them on the gallows? Nuremberg is celebrated as this great good, but to me it was just an extension of the fog of war into peace time. It may have been morally necessary, but let's not celebrate it so hard.
