Sorry about this, but I must ask what exactly is
"Gandhi's" morality, or Hitler's for that matter.
I think these 2 guys' lives are very complicated.
Someone hated Gandhi enough to have assassinated
him, and there were people sympathetic to Nazism,
including the physicist Heisenburg (sp?), even
to this day.

Simply saying Hitler vs Gandhi does not help clarify
things. It actually makes it worse. "Remain silent,
unless what you say is better than silence."
