The wrongs which we seek to condemn and punish have been so calculated, so malignant, and so devastating, that civilization cannot tolerate their being ignored, because it cannot survive their being repeated. That four great nations, flushed with victory and stung with injury stay the hand of vengeance and voluntarily submit their captive enemies to the judgment of the law is one of the most significant tributes that Power has ever paid to Reason…. What makes this inquest significant is that these prisoners represent sinister influences that will lurk in the world long after their bodies have returned to dust. We will show them to be living symbols of racial hatreds, of terrorism and violence, and of the arrogance and cruelty of power. They are symbols of fierce nationalisms and of militarism, of intrigue and war-making which have embroiled Europe generation after generation, crushing its manhood, destroying its homes, and impoverishing its life. They have so identified themselves with the philosophies they conceived and with the forces they directed that any tenderness to them is a victory and an encouragement to all the evils which are attached to their names.
If Humility Is So Important, Why Are Leaders So Arrogant?
To "arrogate" means "to claim or seize without justification Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one's own competence, accomplishments or capabilities. The adjectival form of the noun hubris is "hubristic". The term hubris originated in ancient Greek ,  where it had several different meanings depending on the context: in legal usage it meant assault or sexual crimes and theft of public property,  and in religious usage it meant transgression against a god. In some contexts, the term had a sexual connotation. In legal terms, hubristic violations of the law included what might today be termed assault -and- battery , sexual crimes, or the theft of public or sacred property. Two well-known cases are found in the speeches of Demosthenes , a prominent statesman and orator in ancient Greece.

There is clear evidence that humble leaders outperform arrogant leaders. And yet, leaders at every level have a hard time checking their egos at the office door. Humility can also feel soft at a time when problems are hard; it can make leaders feel vulnerable when people are looking for answers and reassurances. And lastly, leaders often would rather fail than to admit their dependence on someone else. All of which raises an obvious question: If humility is so important, why are so many leaders today, especially our most famous leaders, so arrogant?

This article examines the use of rhetoric by Robert H. Jackson during his opening statement for the prosecution at the first Nuremberg Trial through the lens of the narrative perspective. The resulting discovery was that the statement was designed to not only compel the trier of fact to find the defendants guilty, but also to justify to the world the creation of international criminal law. In large part, there is truth to this statement. International criminal law would not exist as it does today without the Nuremberg Trials.
