I am quite curious about why the English edition of One Human Minute does not contain “Provocation,” whereas the German does (and is titled Provokationen, no less).

I am reading the German translation, albeit slowly, not yet having adequate Polish. The remarks about Heidegger and Mann are of interest. Also “Der Nazi als Gangster ist schon eine allzu triviale Banalisierung des Problems, als Diener des Teufels aber ist er eine pathetische Banalitat.” John Galbraith would’ve disagreed.
