Reader feedback: People notice when Harry wears Nazi uniform

Neo-Nazis sentenced for promoting fascism, January 24 - January 30, 2005, Flash news

When [British Prince] Harry wears a Nazi uniform, people notice. It generates publicity, it gets people talking about various issues such as the Holocaust, and actions get taken because he is a royal.

The world stops and notices, and progress can be made.

It is not just about another 20-year-old being irresponsible. His wealth and privilege come from being a representative of the state.

Maybe he is not a bad guy or intend to hurt anyone, but he did make a mistake, and it is an opportunity for the public to do something about it in their debates on what we should remember and what we choose to remember about the Nazis.

If there were no public debate, if everyone said, "Oh, how cute, that brown shirt is a good colour for him," wouldn't that be more disturbing?
