Who would say that, but one who assumes unquestioning obedience?

Nüremberg Principle IV begins:
"The fact that a person acted pursuant to order of his Government or of
a superior does not relieve him from responsibility" ...

You're evidently much younger than I, or you would not be ignorant of 
the lessons of World War II.

Your evident preference for mindless obedience _will_ lead us to repeat 
the mistakes that culminated in the Nüremberg trials.
