Videos of the day -- Christmas in the sinister world

Here, with no such subtlety, is a Christmas carol for a time when evils from the relatively recent past are once again threatening to rise and reassert themselves (found via Politics Plus):

I always thought that the opening of The Odessa File was one of the best for any film.
