My father was alive during WW2 - Surely that's like saying it doesn't seem right that he should enjoy life in 2001 because the war was too close and he failed to stop the war or do something about it?
Or even more recently - how dare we go to banquets, build roads or churches when we actually lived through the Biafra famine, or the Ethipoian famine or the massacre in Rwanda or the killing fields of Cambodia and ethnic cleansing in Bosnia, etc., and did not stop them either? All of these are much closer to us than the famine was to the people of 1901 - especially onsidering we have television and modern electronic communications to bring tragedies worldwide up close and personal?
