Yeah, sometimes being frank about various things even today could result in one getting into trouble. For instance, look at the treatment that people such as Arthur Jensen got for their research. Granted, this is different from what was happening in WWI, but my point here is that speaking out in a way that makes the people at the top uncomfortable could result in one getting into serious trouble--albeit to a greater extent in Belgium during WWI in comparison to the US in the post-WWII decades.Do You think It is a real difference between 0,1% or 98% death toll when You are part of those percentages?
Maybe You noticed that when it comes to a couple of things I have a big mouth. 100 years ago, I think that in a lot of places in Europe, not just in Belgium, that could have been slightly problematic.
