In the News "Peers and scientists including Professor Stephen Hawking are once again pushing for an official pardon for codebreaker Alan Turing. Turing's death from cyanide poisoning in 1954 was ruled a suicide, coming after his conviction for gross indecency at a time when homosexuality was illegal." The fact that he still hasn't been pardoned is an utter disgrace.

You can not right the wrong since it is already done, and you DO NOT want to try to right every wrong in history.

Seriously. Trying to right wrongs on the European continent would be a blood bath. Just in the last life time millions of people have been forcible displaced, had their livelyhoods destroyed and homes taken from them. We have peace now though, but trying to right those wrongs that happened just after WW2 is not going to make the world a better place, only much much worse.
