How Do You Kill 11 Million People?

by Larry Hehn on April 8, 2013

How Do You Kill 11 Million PeopleToday is Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Between 1933 and 1945, the Nazi regime under Adolf Hitler institutionally killed more than 11 million people.

As we pause today and remember those atrocities, hoping and praying that something like that will never happen again, we need to pay attention to folks like author Andy Andrews who ask the hard question – how do you kill 11 million people?

How can such devastation be allowed to happen? How can more than 11 million people be led to their deaths? What would cause a society to go so far sideways? And what can we do to prevent that sort of thing from ever happening again?

Because unless we know and recognize the things that set such wheels in motion in the first place, history is destined to repeat.

The plain and simple truth, he discovered, was that you kill 11 million people by lying to them.

In his book How Do You Kill 11 Million People? Andrews reveals the dangers of leaders who lie, and more importantly, a population that trusts such people to lead them.

Andy Andrews is an advocate of truth. How Do You Kill 11 Million People is a call to action, specifically to the people of the United States, but also to the world in general, to demand truth from our leaders and to take an active, informed, passionate role in shaping our society.

We’ve seen what can happen without it.

It’s up to you and me to make sure that doesn’t happen again.

Our world is full of little lies – Wear your coat or you’ll catch the flu; ‘Hi, it’s (insert name here) calling from (insert credit card company here,) we’d like to help you’; ‘I have read and fully understand the End “User License Agreement”‘; The ‘End User License Agreement’ itself. All full of lies, half truths and twisted truths.

It’s when we abdicate the responsibility for evaluating these little lies that we make a space for those position to do so to tell (and get away with) the larger lies.

Evaluation is the tool that our children need us to teach them, and when we don’t pay attention to the little lies, when we participate in the little lies ourselves, we create a future where they will be unable to determine who is trustwothy.

My 2 cents.
