Quotes of Eichmann

“ The thing with Catholicism, the same as all religions, is that it teaches what should be, which seems rather incorrect. This is "what should be." Now, if you're taught to live up to a "what should be" that never existed — only an occult superstition, no proof of this "should be" — then you can sit on a jury and indict easily, you can cast the first stone, you can burn Adolf Eichmann, like that! ”

- Lenny Bruce

“ The trouble with Eichmann was precisely that so many were like him, and that the many were neither perverted nor sadistic, that they were, and still are, terribly and terrifyingly normal. From the viewpoint of our legal institutions and of our moral standards of judgment, this normality was much more terrifying than all the atrocities put together. ”

- Hannah Arendt
