    .... you're still making this mistake of taking one instance and ignoring that there's far more good than bad. Not only that- it's not as if the past was void of terrible doings by people.

    The holocaust.


    There. Your move. Tell me what in the past 30 yrs compares to that...

    The Holocaust? Really LOL?

    Ok sure let's talk about Adolf Hitler killing jews in Germany since thats relevant to Americans killing each other in modern times.

    IDK where to go with this since you can't stay on track. But I'll raise your Holocaust withThe Jeselnik Offensive.

    If we're still progressing as a society, how does Anthony Jeselnik get a TV show?

    And BTW, having Thesurething support your argument is a point in my favor.

    DW, let me ask you something, do you view society as a shape, or a line?

    I just got finished reading Escape From Camp 14 and have a hard time seeing us progressing if something like that is allowed to exist without anyone seeming to care.

    http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com...cking-expose-of-north-koreas-horrific-gulags/

    On the book:

    North Korea is isolated and hungry, bankrupt and belligerent. It is also armed with nuclear weapons. Between 150,000 and 200,000 people are being held in its political prison camps, which have existed twice as long as Stalin's Soviet gulags and twelve times as long as the Nazi concentration camps. Very few born and raised in these camps have escaped. But Shin Donghyuk did.
    In Escape from Camp 14, acclaimed journalist Blaine Harden tells the story of Shin Dong-hyuk and through the lens of Shin's life unlocks the secrets of the world's most repressive totalitarian state. Shin knew nothing of civilized existence-he saw his mother as a competitor for food, guards raised him to be a snitch, and he witnessed the execution of his own family. Through Harden's harrowing narrative of Shin's life and remarkable escape, he offers an unequaled inside account of one of the world's darkest nations and a riveting tale of endurance, courage, and survival.


    Highlights included:
    • When he was six he watched a teacher beat another student to death in front of the class
    • Being tortured at age 12 because his brother and mother tried to escape. Guards held him over a fire
    • Watching that same mother and brother killed in a public execution; again at age 12
    • Having a finger cut off for dropping a sewing machine at work
    • working in a coal mine as a pre-teen

    Are you serious? Have you been under a rock?

    1. Cambodian Genocide. Which I actually visited the site of. I went to the Killing Fields and Genocide museum. A German friend of mine, who has been to all the major Holocaust museums, warned me not to. Said it is far more traumatic. The Khmer Rouge communists killed everyone in the country who was educated. It was so bad that Vietnam found what they were doing appalling and overthrew them.

    At the end the country was a basket case. Everyone who knew how to do anything was dead. All that was left was farmers. Nothing else. They could not even bring aid into the country because they did not have experienced stevedores to unload the boats. Aid ships waited a month to get unloaded.

    2. Rwandan Genocide. One million Tutsi killed in only a few months. Hacked to death by gangs of Hutu extremists. There was even a Hollywood movie about this one.
