I just read a 1938 article by H.G. Wells about “The Future of the Jews” and… I had no idea of the level of this man’s anti-Semitism. Was this common knowledge, either then or now?

You can’t even attribute it to ignorance or “the times,” because he was both a historian and a futurist, so you would expect a degree of enlightenment.

I am tempted right now to find Malcolm McDowell and punch him in the face, just because I think of H.G. Wells as looking like him.
