“Are we the baddies?”

From: That Mitchell and Webb Look

Genre: Television

Who said it?: German SS Soldier

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the British sketch show That Mitchell and Webb Look. The show features David Mitchell and Robert Webb and is based on their successful radio comedy show.

The quote comes from the very first episode in a sketch entitled Nazis. A SS encampment is bracing themselves from a Russian assault. However, one of the officers starts questioning his superior the reason why they have skull symbols on their caps. This is when he delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom:  We live in an are where we all think we are on the right side of history and have decided that anyone who opposes our worldview is automatically wrong and the enemy. We never even bother to listen to their argument with an open mind anymore. The problem is we never stop and think if the other side may have valid points or we may eventually think we’re wrong in the future.
