Rich - yes, I agree, it shows human greatness (right word? Might be wrong translation for what I'm thinking of in German, maybe "strength" is better) if people aren't bitter or feeling hate about what has happened to them or their families, or at least don't categorize any decendant of the nation or group who oppressed them but give them a fair chance instead (I can relate to feeling happy to encounter such open mindedness, that's how I felt on those few occasions when I met Jewish people and was holding my breath waiting for their reaction when they heard that I'm German, I was so glad to find out that they were just as interested in talking to me as I was in talking to them. But that's off the subject.) But not everyone is able to be like that.
But, coming back to Eric's interview, what parts were you thinking of when you wrote about immaturity and taking it out on people of today? I read it again and just don't find anything that would give me that impression. I have no reason defending the guy, it would be no problem at all for me to dislike him. It's just that I was scrolling up and down between the interview and your comments below and just couldn't figure out what you meant. Did I overlook something? He put down the movie (saying that many things were incorrect), but that's not what you meant, or? And, I'm embarrassed to admit that I didn't get the comparison with Braveheart (above), either, maybe I'm a little blocked today. Could you explain it? (Did you mean the historical incorrectness, is that it?)
