En una novela de Walker Percy, The Thanatos Syndrome, se encuentra uno con estas palabras, que lo dejan sin aliento: “Beware, tender hearts! Don’t you know where tenderness leads? To the gas chambers. Never in the history of the world have there been so many civilized tenderhearted souls as have lived in this century. Never in the history of the world have so many people been killed. More people have been killed in this century by tenderhearted souls than by cruel barbarians in all other centuries put together. My brothers, let me tell you where tenderness leads. To the gas chambers! On with the jets!”
No me pregunten si estoy de acuerdo. Lo que estoy es perplejo... porque temo que va a ser que sí.
