Somehow, VC makes the connection between dissent and massacre.

dis‧sent  /dɪˈsɛnt/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[di-sent] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–verb (used without object)
1. to differ in sentiment or opinion, esp. from the majority; withhold assent; disagree (often fol. by from): Two of the justices dissented from the majority decision.
2. to disagree with the methods, goals, etc., of a political party or government; take an opposing view.
3. to disagree with or reject the doctrines or authority of an established church.
4. difference of sentiment or opinion.
5. dissenting opinion.
6. disagreement with the philosophy, methods, goals, etc., of a political party or government.
7. separation from an established church, esp. the Church of England; nonconformity.

If you're going to blame "dissent" for massacres, might as well blame water. Might as well blame oxygen. Little known fact: Hitler drank water. Coincidence? I don't think so!

And hell, if there was some dissent in Germany, maybe World War II never would have happened.
