The sinking of the Scharnhorst was certainly the most memorable experience in Norman’s life. Like all soldiers of all nations, he was lured into believing that it’s worth fighting “the enemy”. He and I know better who benefits from wars now: Wall Street and other financiers, besides arms manufacturers and maybe politicians who never risk their lives themselves.

Then 18, now 85, he woke up to other ways of thinking, when he turned 70 and became a human rights activist, simply to defend atrocities committed against himself. But he soon realised that he was not alone.

When he was imprisoned at 85, for supposedly recording a court hearing – with a device that wasn’t even capable of doing so – it was Russia Today that broke the news, while over 2,700 supporters signed a petition for him.

How long will the Rule of Money govern over the Rule of Law???
