Genocide and Mass Murder


However this happened, whoever did it, it's business as usual for the human race. The killing of thousands of innocent people on this particular day of infamy isn't anything out of the ordinary for you earth creatures. Isn't it just a repeat of what's been going on with this "Planet of the Apes" since the day you got here? The history of your pitifull existence is littered with innumerable examples of genocide and mass murder commited brother against brother in an endless theater of bloodletting. Starting with the Roman Empire, 50,000 spectators were entertained with gladiatorial games, executions and animal hunts. An estimated 500,000 people and over a million wild animals died in the Colosseum games. Let's go down the list: the Peloponnesian War, the genocides of Amalekites and Midianites, the destruction of Carthage, the Mongol horsemen of Genghis Khan, the un-ending religious wars, the eradication of as many as 100 million indigenous natives of the Americas, the complete extinction of the Tasmanian Aboriginal population, the War in the Vendée, The Jallianwala Bagh Massacre, the Philippine-American War, the Herero and Namaqua Genocide in German South-West Africa, War of the Three Kingdoms, the complete destruction of the Zunghar people, the Armenian Genocide, the Assyrian Genocide, the Greek genocide, the Spanish civil war, the Nazi holocaust of the Jews, the American civil war, the genocide against the Don Cossacks, World War One, the Guatemalan civil war, the Srebrenica genocide, the Rwandan Genocide, the Bangladesh War of 1971, Béla Kun's ethnic cleansing against Turkish and Crimean Tatars and other minorities in 1921-22, World War Two, Lenin's Red Terror, Stalin's Great Purge, the Korean War, Mao's suppression of counterrevolutionaries, Pol Pot's Killing Fields, massacres at the partition of India, or the Hama, Tlatelolco massacres, and the mass killing of communists by Suharto's New Order, War and Genocide in East Timor, Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the Nanjing Massacre, the Katyn Forest Massacre of Polish citizens, the Bombing of Chongqing, the Blitz, the bombing of Dresden and Hamburg, Pearl Harbor, the Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Vietnam War, the Ethiopian Red Terror, the Halabja poison gas attack, The Persian Gulf War, the genocide in Tibet, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, should I stop there or keep going? You earthlings have spent the past ten thousand years perfecting your killing skills. You are very good at it. I don't know how long you will last.

though this may be true, humanity has a strong will to live

maybe its that strong will that has caused all these deaths, ironically

Comrade,

I was happy to find your blog at first because of the subtitle:

"I dream of a Star Trek world. This think tank will focus on creative actions designed to initiate a global paradigm shift towards a world where racism, poverty and war will be a thing of the past."

I don't know what a Star Trek world is, but I, too, aspire for a world where there is no racism, war, or economic exploitation.

Comrade V. I. Lenin was one of the foremost proponents of enacting such a vision on earth. He did not commit mass murder or genocide. I ask you to present evidence that he did. Comrade Lenin executed counterrevolutionaries, that is certain. That simply cannot be compared with the actions of reactionary racist scum like Hitler who killed Jews based solely on their genetic makeup. The kind of people Comrade Lenin executed were exactly the kind of filth that brutally murdered Comrade Rosa Luxemburg in Germany.

Again, Comrade, please tell me how you came to this conclusion about Comrade Lenin. I agree with you about Stalin and Pol Pot betraying communism (although I conditionally support Comrade Mao), but Comrade Lenin was utterly a pillar of the 20th century, the single person who came closest to achieving what I think we both desire above all.

Fraternal greetings.
