Moms for Liberty has drawn online ire by quoting Hitler in a newsletter as an attempt to raise the alarm about school indoctrination. But is apology the right way to go when there’s no forgiveness on offer? Even private messages can lead to public scapegoating, raising the question whether there’s any such thing as private thoughts anymore.
