This led, naturally, to other—better—questions.

And nearly everyone had an opinion.

Lurking beneath these hypothetical moral choices, of course, was a still deeper question about space-time and history: What if Baby Hitler? Imagine it. Baby Hitler, sitting there, Hitlering there in his high chair. His little baby legs dangle at a Hitleresque angle. His Hitlery eyes stare straight through you. Does he have a mustache? Of course not: He’s a baby. 

But he’s also Hitler.

Man, what a mindfuck.
