But circles of tolerance existed. Without them, we wouldn’t have the poetry of Brian Howard or the novels of Norman Douglas. No doubt the lower classes were treated worse. The claim that persecution was universal, however, is all the better for the evidence. Besides, what makes fiction interesting is the presence of the unexpected — including unexpected actions from characters whose behavior we think we can predict. This isn’t error; it’s selection. To make the case for the historical inaccuracy of the Grantham family’s attitudes, one must argue not that few people with money behaved so altruistically, but that none did. Otherwise one cannot do any sort of fiction without first making sure that every member of every group possesses all the traits of most members of the class. By this standard, “Casablanca” turns out to be a ridiculous movie, because, really, how many expat nightclub owners actually got involved in the anti-Nazi resistance? And let’s not get started on “The West Wing,” with its absurd pretense that people who work in the White House ever spend a moment thinking of the common good rather than political advantage.
