Quite a long, but interesting article. Upon finishing it, I began thinking about my own silences and complicity during my years in the communist party. Whenever I shake the dust off my mini memoir (maybe that makes it sound more than it is) and resume writing, I will have to give this dynamic more attention than I perhaps would have. Silences and complicity happen in many settings. Some are big and consequential like the ones the writer in the article describes, some not so much. Mine (and most people’s) comfortably fit into the latter.
