One of Spencer’s interlocutors threw out a chilling piece of information that I was unaware of: one of my patron saint’s descendants (Göring, since he vehemently defended the welfare of animals), sterilized himself out of guilt once he internalized, with extraordinary violence, anti-German propaganda.
