Word Origin & History
A play on words, the pronunciation of β€œNot-See” invokes the word β€œNazi”. The crimes of the former are passive instead of active – those who would turn a blind eye to injustice rather than perpetrating it themselves. The ideologies of both, however, are predicated upon a certain egocentrism, social privilege, and stark self-versus-other mentality.
