  • Here's where I think the methodological individualism of Rationalism manifests in a bad way. My knowledge is light but a quick skim of Wikipedia's page on rescuers suggests that networks of rescuers were far more effective in saving Jews than heroic individuals. Which makes sense; networks have more resources. And morality as a phenomenon is really not best understood at an individual level or as 1-1 interactions, but in terms of social networks of obligation, trust, and judgement.
