Can We Forgive?  How can we forgive them at all, if they know not what they do?  We have nothing to forgive.  But does a man ever fully know what he is doing?  And if this point at least remains always debatable, men never have anything to forgive each other, and indulgence is for the reasonable man an impossible thing.  Finally, if the evil doers had really known what they did, we should still only have a right to forgive if we had a right to accuse and to punish.  But we have not that right.
