I cannot parse this pathetic excuse for a sentence, Hans.

Whenever you have a comma followed by a conjunction, you must have a
complete sentence on each side. That means you need a noun and a
verb. Sometimes the noun may be implicit, but it is very rarely the
case that the verb is implicit. I cannot find the verb in the
fragment, ``Some more than others.'' In addition, your copious use of
parentheses is quite distracting. Furthermore, since ``nazi'' is a
proper noun, is should definitely be capitalized.

I just can't handle it all.

Mike
