"Human beings are perhaps never more frightening than when they are convinced beyond doubt that they are right."

Modern-day children of the Kalahari bushmen

A white man in Africa wrote about the roles his ancestors likely played in history:
The older I grew the more concerned I became over the part my own family must have had in the extermination of the Bushmen. That it was considerable I have no doubt... I knew that with their deep Calvinist addiction to what they thought right, they would have done their duty conscientiously. Human beings are perhaps never more frightening than when they are convinced beyond doubt that they are right.
From The Lost World of the Kalahari, a book about the Bushman of Africa, by Laurens Van der Post.
